Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Outcomes Reports

These outcomes reports, based on data collected by OSHPD’s California CABG Outcomes Reporting Program, provide quality ratings for the state-licensed hospitals and surgeons that perform isolated coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The performance ratings are based on three key risk-adjusted outcomes: operative mortality, post-operative stroke, and unplanned hospital readmissions within 30 days. In addition, a number of trend and impact reports have been produced.

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery is the most common surgical procedure for treating coronary artery disease. In this surgery, a vein or artery from another part of the body is used to create a new path for blood to flow to the heart, bypassing the blocked artery. Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of all adult non-maternal admissions to California hospitals, representing nearly 9% of all admissions. It is a chronic condition in which cholesterol and fat solidify to form plaque along the linings of the coronary arteries. If plaque continues to build up, blood vessels can be restricted or blocked leading to chest pain or a heart attack.

2015

This report provides quality ratings for the 126 state-licensed hospitals that performed isolated coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery during 2015.

2013-2014

This report provides quality ratings for the 125 state-licensed hospitals and 271 surgeons that performed coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery during 2013-2014. The performance ratings are based on three key risk-adjusted outcomes: operative mortality for isolated CABG, operative mortality for CABG + Valve, and post-operative stroke.
