Background:

"Through nearly 3 decades of iterative refinement, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Adult Cardiac Surgery Database has evolved into one of the most comprehensive and respected clinical data registries in health care. It is a widely acknowledged exemplar for accurately benchmarking risk-adjusted outcomes in cardiac surgery and underpins all quality measurement and improvement activities of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. This is the latest in a series of annual reports that outlines current national aggregate outcomes and volume trends in cardiac surgery and summarizes database-related work in quality measurement and performance improvement during the past year."1
