This article presents 21 “Quality Measures for Congenital and Pediatric Cardiac Surgery” that were developed and approved by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and endorsed by the Congenital Heart Surgeons’ Society (CHSS). These Quality Measures are organized according to Donabedian’s Triad of Structure, Process, and Outcome. It is hoped that these quality measures can aid in congenital and pediatric cardiac surgical quality assessment and quality improvement initiatives.
