Notes:

  1. Total all-listed procedures represents the total number of procedures performed; up to 6 procedures may be recorded per discharge, as a result the total number of all-listed procedures can exceed the total number of discharges.
  2. Procedures were classified using AHRQ's HCUP procedure class software. See AHRQ's website for more information: www.hcup-us.ahrq.gov/toolssoftware/procedure/procedure.jsp
  3. Percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
