Mortality Rates for Cardiac Procedures

2019

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) publishes outcomes for surgeries of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and chest. National data on these outcomes is submitted to STS for publication according to STS' Harvest schedule. Cleveland Clinic compares surgical mortality rates to national rates provided by STS. STS provides data that is procedure-based, and not risk-adjusted.
