The etiopathogenesis remains little understood but it is believed that contamination of the wound during surgery, most commonly by gram-positive bacteria, is the main cause [].

Several researches have demonstrated the interaction of pre- and trans-operative risk factors in the genesis of mediastinitis, especially obesity, diabetes, previous heart surgery and the use of internal mammary arteries in the procedures of coronary artery bypass grafting [1,4,5].

Diagnosis is difficult and is generally delayed, thus, a high degree of suspicion is required [6]. Clinical and radiographic findings help in the investigation and the utilization of computed thoracic tomography detects diagnostically significant signs, such as to the presence of mediastinal fluid collection, dehiscence or sternal or pneumo-mediastinal erosion [3,7].

Nevertheless, the definitive diagnosis is achieved by sternal puncture, collecting material for analysis of the bacteria, or from the surgical wound itself. Of these two methods, diagnosis by puncture of the sternum can demonstrate the existence of mediastinitis at an earlier stage in patients in which there is clinic suspicion, because it is a less invasive procedure and has less risks than to reopening the thoracic cavity [8,9]. Treatment demands surgical re-exploration and immediate empirical antibiotic therapy [6,].

In this research we tried to identity pre- and trans-operative predictors of risk related to mediastinitis after heart surgery performed in our department. METHOD A descriptive, analytical cohort observational study was performed from variables obtained from the database of the sector of heart surgery. The data were obtained by the same researcher, according to a specific protocol of the heart surgery recovery unit, during the period in which the patients were hospitalized.

The occurrence of events was recorded until hospital discharge. The qui-squared test was utilized for univariant analysis.

Mediastinitis was defined based on clinical, laboratorial and tomographic criteria.

A review of the literature was performed in the areas of heart and thoracic surgery, using Medline and textbooks. The characteristics of this group and the prevalence of the analyzed variables are summarized in Table 1.

Among the patients who developed mediastinitis, six From the nine analyzed variables, a significant association in the development of mediastinitis was only observed for obesity, diabetes, COPD and mammary artery grafts. Logistic regression analysis identified obesity, diabetes and COPD as independent predictors of higher risk of mediastinitis, as is illustrated in Table 2. These variables remained independent predictors of risk even after taking into consideration gender and age.

The use of mammary artery grafts was seen as a predictor of risk only when associated with obesity. The incidence of mediastinitis varies according to the institution, but it is calculated as being between 0.

In our service, the incidence of mediastinitis was 2. Many factors have been associated to the development of mediastinitis after heart surgery.

However, there is no consensus in the literature about which factors are more important and if each one is an independent predictor of higher risk for postoperative mediastinitis [6]. Published studies give conflicting results about associated risk factors, probably due to differences in the methodologies used.

Additionally, there can be variations according to the institution where the surgical procedure was performed, as well as its geographic location [4]. The Guidelines of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association utilize an estimation of the risk created by a study group on cardiovascular diseases from England, as is shown in Table 3.

In our study, the factors considered independent predictors of potential risk of mediastinitis were obesity, COPD and diabetes Mellitus. According to the reviewed data, among all the risk factors, obesity seems to be the most important independent risk factor for mediastinitis, as has already been demonstrated in several studies [2,5,].

The exact mechanism by which obese patients are susceptible is not well known. It is probable, that in these patients, the levels of antibiotics in the tissues utilized during prophylaxis in the perioperative period are inadequate, as these patients present with a greater volume.

Additionally, the preparation of the skin of obese patients may be more difficult or even inadequate. An additional factor is that the great quantity of adipose tissue can serve as a substrate for infections of the surgical wound.

COPD has already been demonstrated as a risk factor for mediastinitis in previous studies, although not in isolation [11,26,27].
