Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Program Reports
The California Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Program Report provides information on the quality of elective PCIs at California general acute care hospitals certified to perform PCIs without on-site cardiac surgery.
PCI is a non-surgical technique for treating coronary artery disease (CAD) used to open narrowed coronary arteries. CAD occurs when plaque builds up in the coronary arteries, limiting the flow of blood to the heart muscle. Elective PCIs specifically refer to scheduled PCIs in contrast to urgent or emergent PCIs that are scheduled on an ad hoc basis.
The following reports provide three performance outcomes measures, PCI mortality, post-PCI stroke, and post-PCI emergency coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
