The STS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database (ACSD) is the world's premier clinical outcomes registry for adult cardiac surgery. Launched in 1989, the Database contains more than 6.5 million cardiac surgery procedure records and currently has nearly 3,800 participating physicians, including surgeons and anesthesiologists.
Executive summaries provide a high-level overview of each Database for the reporting period. Executive summaries contain volume data by selected procedures and unadjusted operative mortality for selected procedures.
