The Spanish Society of Cardiovascular Surgery has sent a questionnaire to all 37 cardiovascular surgical groups to know the number and type of cardiovascular operations carried out in our country during 1991. The questionnaire was answered by 36 out of 37. In the year 1991, 21,771 cardiovascular patients have been operated upon and 10,913 interventions with extracorporeal circulation have been carried out: 42.4% in valvular disease, 37.2% in coronary and 11.2% in congenital. The number of operations was 5,415 for vascular disease, 4,627 for valvular, 3,168 for coronary, 1,896 for congenital and 3,741 for pacemaker implantation. The total number of operations in 1991 comparing to those performed during 1988 is similar; but the number of open heart operation and the number of these per cardiac unit and per million population during 1991 have increased 20.5, 13.9 and 24.3% respectively. Coronary and valvular operations have also increased 11 and 27% respectively, as well as the number of pacemaker implanted (30%). The number of congenital cases remains the same and the number of vascular operations has decreased by 7.9%.
