The Mount Sinai Hospital's Cardiac Catheterization Lab awarded highest safety rating in New York State

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
(NEW YORK, NY – May 6, 2019) – The Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory of Mount Sinai Heart at The Mount Sinai Hospital has received the highest "two-star" safety rating from the New York State Department of Health for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), overall and in non-emergency cases. This marks the 21st consecutive year that the Mount Sinai Catheterization Laboratory or its physicians have been awarded the prestigious designation for safety rates significantly exceeding the statewide average. Only three hospitals in the state have this ranking for PCI.

Samin Sharma, MD, Director of Clinical and Interventional Cardiology at The Mount Sinai Hospital; Annapoorna Kini, MD, Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at The Mount Sinai Hospital; and Pedro Moreno, Professor of Cardiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have also received "two-star" safety ratings for PCI. The new report shows they performed a combined 6,529 cases, and that Mount Sinai has the most interventional cardiologists in the state with "two-star" ratings.

"Patient safety is our top priority at The Mount Sinai Hospital Cath Lab. Our efficiency and safety outcomes are unparalleled, and we are very proud of this achievement which is only possible because of the talented and dedicated interventional cardiology team," says leading interventional cardiologist Dr. Sharma.

PCI, also known as angioplasty, is a minimally invasive procedure performed inside a catheterization laboratory. It is used to diagnose and treat patients with heart disease or blocked heart arteries. A thin catheter is threaded through the body, typically from an artery in the groin, to a blocked vessel in the heart. A diagnosed blockage can be removed, often with a stent that is inserted to restore blood flow within the vessel. Patients entering a cardiac catheterization laboratory can range from non-emergency cases experiencing early heart disease symptoms up to emergency cases who are suffering a myocardial infarction or heart attack.

The new data released by the Department of Health reports on the outcomes of patients who were discharged from all 61 statewide cardiac catheterization labs from December 1, 2013, to November 30, 2016. The "Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI) in New York State 2014-2016" report tracked PCI data in overall, non-emergency, and emergency cases.

During this three-year period, Mount Sinai's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory achieved significantly higher safety and survival rates than the statewide average, even while performing the highest number of PCI procedures in New York (10,888). Mount Sinai's risk-adjusted mortality rate, or RAMR, for all cases (0.90 percent) was significantly lower than the statewide average (1.18 percent). Also, the RAMR mortality rate for non-emergency cases (0.58 percent) was significantly lower than the statewide average (.77 percent).
