    Abstract

    This EACTS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database Report contains information on over one million patients undergoing adult cardiac surgery in the period up to the end of December 2008. The submissions are from 366 hospitals in 29 countries across Europe and China, including Hong Kong. The data include analyses of patient characteristics, the type of surgery, operative risk factors and post-operative outcomes including in-hospital mortality and length-of-stay. We have analysed the pooled data to show overall trends over time and compared the incidence of risk factors and outcomes between countries. We have set these analyses against data on populations, health status and economic statistics from the World Health Organisation.
