We have assembled a nationally respected team of doctors and clinicians at Tyler Heart Institute. You can receive the most advanced care, right here in the comfort of your own community. After your procedure, we will provide you with the rehabilitation and lifestyle coaching you will need. Included below are quality measures for three different types of heart procedures. We consistently strive for the best quality and recovery for our patients.
Our cardiac program
Cardiac Surgery Outcomes
*National benchmarks are provided by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS)
**This is a measure of combined outcomes. It is true if any of the following are indicated: Operative mortality, reoperation for any cause, permanent stroke, prolonged ventilation, deep sternal wound infection, or renal failure.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Outcomes*
|Lower is better
|In-hospital mortality rate
Observed rate; all-cause mortality rate; not risk-adjusted
|Post-procedure length of stay in days
Average post-procedure length of stay in days for patients with TAVR
*Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that repairs the valve without removing the old, damaged valve. Instead, it wedges a replacement valve into the aortic valve's place (Source: American Heart Association).
**National benchmark as the aggregated value for the measure/metric across all US patients is provided by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and American College of Cardiology (STS/ACC) TVT Registry
***This is a measure of combined outcomes. It is true if any of the following are indicated: Cardiac complications, neurologic complications, renal complications, bleeding, and vascular complications, or device complications.
Interventional Cardiology: PCI Outcomes*
* Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a non-surgical procedure used to treat narrowing (stenosis) of the coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary artery disease.
**National benchmark as the aggregated value for the measure/metric across all US patients is provided by the American College of Cardiology Foundation CathPCI Registry
