Clinical Question Submission Form

Welcome to the Clinical Question submission section of the STS National Database. By scrolling down to the very bottom of this page, please find the STS Clinical Question Request Form link. Click this link to access the actual request form. Once you have completed the form in its entirety, at the bottom of the request form you will find a submit button. By clicking the submit button your clinical question will be forwarded to the Clinical Question Mailbox at the STS.

  • In most cases, questions will be reviewed and the answer will be e-mailed back to you within 30 days
  • Questions will be answered in the order that they are received
  • Only one question per STS Clinical Question Request Form
  • Please do not re-submit questions

As a reminder this area is for clinical questions only. Questions pertaining to harvest timelines, verifying data receipts, resolving data transmission problems, clarifying data quality report concerns, and interpreting final report matters should be sent to your Data Submission Coordinator at DCRI.

If you do not receive a response within 30 days, please contact Donna McDonald at dmcdonald [at] sts [dot] org.

Please note that there is a new STS Clinical Question Request Form. You will no longer be receiving a confirmation e-mail. Please submit the clinical question once and do not re-submit.
