Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery Outcomes

Mortality rate is the percentage of patients who died before being discharged from the hospital following Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (CABG) for both elective and emergent procedures. All surgical procedures involve some risk. Additionally, all patients have their own particular risk factors such as previous medical and family history, current state of overall health, how long they have had their coronary disease, how long it has taken between onset of symptoms to treatment in an acute situation, and many others. Mortality rates for a hospital can be impacted by many things. For example, if a hospital does a low volume of this particular type of surgery, even one unavoidable death can make a significant impact on their mortality rate.
