Cape Cod Hospital Ranks Tops in National PCI Mortality Report

Cape Cod Hospital was again ranked in the 90th percentile (top ten percent) among all hospitals nationwide in terms of risk-adjusted mortality for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures, according to a database report issued by the American College of Cardiology (ACC). Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (previously called Angioplasty, Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty, or Balloon Angioplasty) encompass a variety of procedures used to treat patients with diseased heart arteries that can result in reduced blood flow, or a heart attack caused by plaque that completely blocks the artery.
