Adult Cardiac Surgery – 2019 summary report

Reports | Published: 12 Sep 2019 | Author: HQIP

This annual report looks at all adult cardiac surgery undertaken in the UK over the past 3 years – between 1st April 2015 and 31st March 2018. It is a summary of all the NHS hospitals around the UK, as well as five private hospitals and one hospital from the Republic of Ireland.

Some of the findings of the report include a continual fall in the number of cardiac operations performed in the UK in the past decade (a reduction of over 22% in 10 years from 2008-18) and that in-hospital mortality rate for all elective and urgent operation types combined has been steadily decreasing over the past 10 years. For the 2015/16-2017/18 reporting period, the crude (unadjusted for operative risk) mortality rate is 1.82% (a survival rate of 98.18%), compared to 1.84% in 2014/15-2016/17.
