Participating Hospitals & Publicly Released COAP Data – PCI

Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Outcomes

33 hospitals in Washington State perform percutaneous coronary interventions, or PCI. PCI is a method of restoring blood flow to the heart muscle by reopening clogged arteries. Mortality rate is the percentage of patients who died before being discharged from the hospital following PCI 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.
