  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    The main claim is to report the mortality for patients submitted to aortic valve surgery alone or combined with CABG. The others are to compare morbidity. They have importance because they shown us the results of a cardiac team

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    No. There are already some papers bringing these comparision.

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?


  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?


  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?

    No protocol and an error, calling these report a prospective and retrospective study. It should be one or the other.

    Yes it does

  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    I think these paper viewing in its entire contest is good enough

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    No. It is just a data report with nothing new, despite the good results
