Retrospective observational cohort study using patient medical records to investigate whether preoperative psoas muscle size measured on CT scans and/or the vasopressor-intotrope score predict postoperative outcomes after heart and/or lung transplantation. Records from patients transplanted at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney from 1st January 2016 to 30th September 2020 will be accessed

Summary
Brief summary
A retrospective cohort study will review patient records to calculate a vasoactive-inotropic score for patients who have undergone heart and/or lung transplantation. Additionally in those patients who have has an abdominal CT scan in the preoperative period a psoas muscle cross sectional area (PMCSA) will be calculated. The objective is to assess the association between the VIS and the PMCSA
and whether either measure is associated with post-operative outcomes.
