Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a type of surgery that improves blood flow to the heart. Surgeons use CABG to treat people who have severe coronary heart disease, a disease in which a substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) evaluates 30-day mortality and readmission rates for patients who have CABG surgery:
★ Performance is statistically better than the benchmark
= Performance is statistically similar to the benchmark
▼ Performance is statistically worse than the benchmark
