Description/Abstract

An increase in predicted risk, based on the P-POSSUM methodology, was associated with a higher mortality rate in patients from both countries. However, risk-adjusted mortality rates following major surgery were four times higher in the UK cohort. These marked differences warrant validation in a larger number of centres.
