Abstract

This analysis summarizes the first report of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Congenital Heart Surgery Database Committee in association with Summit Medical Systems. Twenty-four centers joined the program at various dates of entry resulting in 18,894 enrolled patient records. This report compiled the relevant clinical features of 18 congenital heart categories over a 4-year period (1994-1997), which included 8,149 patient records. The data analyses are largely descriptive in character. Missing data points were described and not omitted in the analysis. Statistical analysis was not performed due to missing data points in some categories. Certain trends, however, could be identified and are discussed. The first Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Congenital Heart Surgery Database Report has succeeded in establishing a finite record that can be improved to establish universal national and international utility, risk stratification, and scholarly outcome analyses.
