Abstract

This report describes a multi-institutional study of outcomes of pediatric-aged patients undergoing cardiac catheterization and cardiac operation. The data collected and analysis systems including adjustment for case-mix are described. The data are used by individual centers to assess the nature and quality of their services as well as to contribute to the literature. Because of the large number of patients (63,181) on whom we have data, the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium has the ability to address important clinical problems presented by various cardiac anomalies or patient groups.
