Abstract

Surgical site infection incidence following coronary artery bypass graft surgery was observed across 27,296 procedures within a Medicare population. A facility-level case-control claims analysis demonstrated a significant 25% reduction (P = .04) in suspected surgical site infection at 90 days after coronary artery bypass graft surgery at facilities utilizing a single-patient-use electrocardiography cable and lead wire system.
