Children's Heart Surgical Outcomes

Surgery outcomes

The Children's Heart Program's surgery outcomes are submitted to and evaluated by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). The STS database is considered the gold standard to examine outcomes. The STS conglomerate represents the average mortalities and hospital stays for 117 centers in the United States and Canada that participate in the STS database.
