KNEES - 90-DAY MORTALITY
Data for August 2012 to August 2017 Surgeon risk adjusted 90-day mortality

What does this mean?

This shows 90-day mortality following knee surgery for this surgeon, based on the type of patients this surgeon has seen.

The surgeon you are reviewing is highlighted as an orange triangle. Progression along the horizontal axis (x axis) means that the surgeon has done more cases and/or cases at a higher mortality risk such as older patients. Progression along the vertical axis (y axis) means the surgeon has had more deaths.

The vertical axis figures are presented as a standardised mortality ratio. This means the values do not represent percentages of patients who have died, but they represent the proportion of deaths compared to the national average. The data is also ‘risk adjusted’ to take account of the fact that different surgeons may operate on more higher-risk or lower-risk patients e.g. because of demographics in the patient population they work with.

  • Surgeons on the central (green) horizontal line (at national average ratio figure of 1) have had exactly the average expected mortality
  • Surgeons either side of the central green line but below the upper red line have had a level of mortality that is within the expected range
  • Any surgeons that appear above the top red line which represents a Control limit (99.8%) have a mortality rate that is higher than expected. There were no surgeons with results in this part of the graph in this analysis

The overall 90-day mortality rate following primary knee replacement surgery is approximately 0.2%.
