30 day survival rates following congenital heart disease surgery and interventional procedures
In this report, data published by the National Congenital Heart Disease Audit (NCHDA) between 2011 and 2014 in the UK and Republic of Ireland shows that:
22,719 congenital heart operations and transcatheter interventional procedures were performed across 34 centres, including all 14 specialist paediatric units
no hospital had excess mortality for paediatric surgery within the reporting period, as assessed by using the PRAiS risk adjustment model
Analysis of all hospitals showed an upward trend in survival in the most recent 18 months. The overall survival for all congenital heart disease procedures is extremely high and continues to compare very well with data from international databases in Europe and North America.
