This column chart presents the number of cardiac procedures performed in each region of New York State. Region is defined according to the geographic location of the hospital performing the procedure. The default view presents the number of PCIs and number of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgeries performed in each region in NYS in 2010. Using the Filter Tab you may select different procedures, or regions. It is important to note that Emergency PCI and Valve Surgery are reported only in 3-year increments. Comparing the number of procedures reported during a 3-year time period to those reported in a single year (e.g. CABG to Valve or Non-Emergency PCI to Emergency PCI) may lead to incorrect conclusions concerning procedural volume.
