The Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands dismissed Professor Don Poldermans in 2011 following an academic enquiry into his research methods. Following this dismissal, Prof Poldermans resigned from the ESC Committee for Practice Guidelines. The ESC Committee for Practice Guidelines created a task force to look into the “Guidelines for pre-operative cardiac risk assessment and perioperative cardiac management in non-cardiac surgery” which Prof Poldermans contributed to as a Chairperson of the task force.The current ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines Chairman Professor Jose Luis Zamorano and the ESC President, Professor Panos Vardas have stated that:1. The ESC Clinical Practice Guidelines are always drafted by a significant number of experts, members of our Society and even beyond, experts from other continents.2. In the case of the Guidelines for pre-operative cardiac risk assessment and perioperative cardiac management in non-cardiac surgery, which date back to 2009, the ESC Board, at the meeting in October 2012, unanimously decided to revise them, taking of course into consideration new studies and recent developments.3. At the same Board meeting, Professor Steen Dalby Kristensen from Denmark and Professor Juhani Knuuti from Finland, were appointed Chairs of the new Task Force4.
