STS Star Rating
Cleveland Clinic was one of two hospitals, out of 1,012 hospitals enrolled in the STS Adult Cardiac Surgery database, to achieve the three-star rating in all five categories for which these ratings are available, including Aortic Valve Replacement, Aortic Valve Replacement + Coronary Artery Bypass, Mitral Valve Repair/Replacement, and Mitral Valve Repair/Replacement + Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. The latest analysis for these star ratings covers a 3-year period, from January 2015 to December 2017.
The star ratings are based on mortality (death), morbidity (complications), providing medications during surgery as recommended by national guidelines, and use of the mammary artery during coronary artery bypass surgery.
CABG = Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery
AVR and CABG = Aortic Valve Replacement with Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery
AVR = Aortic Valve Replacement surgery
MVRR = Mitral Valve Repair or Replacement surgery
MVRR and CABG = Mitral Valve Repair or Replacement surgery with Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery
Specific Cardiac Surgery Outcomes (E15 Matrix Data set)
E15 Matrix Data Set
The top seven common operation procedures are collected for all hospitals doing cardiac surgery in the USA (approximately 1050 sites). An institution can match its own outcomes versus those of all other institutions as shown in the table for the first seven operations. The observed mortality for these operations at Cleveland Clinic are shown versus the predicted mortality rates across the country.
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons requests outcomes reports from participating hospitals in order to provide the public with data and hospital ratings across the country.
The matrix table also shows our procedure volumes and outcomes for other complications.
