Summary of "Preoperative B-Blockers as a coronary surgery quality metric: the lack of evidence of efficacy."

Two quality measures used in public-reporting and value-based payment programs require β-blockers be administered <24 hours before isolated coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) to prevent atrial fibrillation (AF) and mortality. Questions have arisen about continued use of these measures.
