The Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s (DPH) Bureau of Health Care Safety and Quality has released two reports, the first details mortality rates for adults undergoing cardiac bypass surgery, and the second documents mortality rates following patients who have undergone treatment to clear a blocked coronary artery. These reports, covering procedures performed during 2007, find that the risk of dying in the immediate aftermath of such procedures has decreased significantly over the past five years.
