For complete transparency, Children's Heart Center reports operative mortality as defined by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). These numbers reflect the percentage of patients who die while still hospitalized after surgery or after discharge within 30 post-operative days. This method is the highest standard of mortality reporting. Despite performing even the most complex operations, Children's Heart Center outcomes compare very favorably with those published by STS.
