Abstract

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Database has three major component databases: the STS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database (ACSD), the STS Congenital Heart Surgery Database (CHSD), and the STS General Thoracic Surgery Database (GTSD). Beginning in January 2016, The Annals of Thoracic Surgery began publishing a monthly series of scholarly articles on outcomes analysis, quality improvement, and patient safety. This article summarizes the status of the STS National Database as of October 2017 and summarizes the articles about the STS National Database that appeared in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery 2017 series “Outcomes Analysis, Quality Improvement, and Patient Safety.”
