Congenital Heart Surgery Public Reporting

The STS Congenital Heart Surgery Database (CHSD) contains information on surgical procedures submitted by participants—most often a hospital cardiothoracic surgery department or cardiothoracic surgery group at one or more hospitals; in some instances, a participant may be an individual surgeon.

STS publicly reports outcomes that are based on the STS Congenital Heart Surgery Database (CHSD) mortality risk model. STS Public Reporting is limited to participants in the US and Canada.

NOTE: Results are based on a participant’s unique group of patients (known as case mix) and the number of surgical procedures in each category. Results published are specific to the participant listed and are not intended for direct comparison to other participants.
