This evaluation was the result of the Assessment Service evaluating the total number of coronary artery bypass graft surgery, the ratio of using internal thoracic artery during the surgery, the ratio of aspirin prescription when leaving the hospital, the ratio of revision surgery from bleeding or hematoma, the fatality rate within 30 days of surgery, and rehospitalization within 30 days after leaving the hospital based on 81 agencies of national upper class general hospitals that proceeded the coronary artery bypass graft surgery to patients who were admitted from ischemic heart disease from July of 2018 to June of 2019.
