California Elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Program Report
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 your organs and other parts of your body which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Elective PCIs specifically refer to scheduled PCIs in contrast to urgent or emergent PCIs that are scheduled on an ad hoc basis.
The following report provides three performance outcomes measures, PCI mortality, post-PCI stroke, and post-PCI emergency coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
