Potentially avoidable deaths associated with specified medical conditions - appendicitis, abdominal hernia, cholelithiasis and cholecystitis (ICD-10 K35-K38, K40-K46, K80, K81), amenable to surgical intervention. From the November 2005 Compendium release of 2002-04 data onwards, the age-group included is 0-74 years rather than the 5-64 years used in previous Compendia. The change reflects the replacement of the ‘mortality from potentially avoidable causes’ indicator by ‘mortality from causes considered amenable to healthcare’ for which this surgical indicator forms a constituent part.
To reduce potentially avoidable mortality associated with specified medical conditions amenable to surgical intervention.
