Abstract

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Adult Cardiac Surgery Database is one of the most mature, comprehensive, and respected clinical data registries in health care. Through nearly three decades of growth and refinement, it is widely recognized for accurately benchmarking risk-adjusted outcomes in cardiac surgery and serves as the foundation for all quality measurement and improvement activities of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. This is the fourth in a series of annual reports that provides updated national outcomes, volume trends, and database-related developments in quality measurement and performance improvement.
