New report highlights variations in approaches to thoracic surgery in the United Kingdom and Ireland
Date:3/21/2008

A new report from the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain & Ireland (published by Dendrite Clinical Systems), has for the first time recorded the variations in activity and surgical approaches between thoracic surgical units in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Presented at the recent Annual Meeting of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain & Ireland (Edinburgh, Scotland), The First National Thoracic Database Report 2008, is the first stage in an attempt to report clinically audited data for thoracic surgery affecting all the organs within the chest (lung and oesophagus), with the exception of the heart.

This First National Thoracic Database Report is the first time data from the National Thoracic Registry has been put together in a comprehensive report, commented UK Thoracic Surgical Audit Lead, Mr Richard Page, Consultant Thoracic Surgeon & Associate Medical Director at the Cardiothoracic Centre, Liverpool. The report puts into context how our approach to thoracic surgery has evolved over the years, and demonstrates that the results of thoracic surgery in the UK have improved over time and compare very favourably with international standards. I believe it is of great educational value.

The purpose of the The First National Thoracic Database Report 2008 is not only to report the number/type of procedures, but also to highlight the differing approaches to thoracic surgery between individual hospitals. The report includes:

  • Data from over 340,000 individual patient records;
  • Detailed information on the surgical management of lung cancer; and
  • Activity from at least 95% (data from 36 of 40 centres) of thoracic surgical activity from the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

This comprehensive, 88-page report provides an overview from 25 years of national activity (1980-2005), detailing unit specific activity for a three-year period (
