More concretely, procedures are divided into six categories: cardiovascular catheterization, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (AAA), carotid thromboendarterectomy, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and pacemaker insertion.
The nine categories were colectomy (-9 percent), cholecystectomy (-7 percent), other major procedures (-2 percent), thromboendarterectomy (-10 percent), pacemaker insertion (-8 percent), hip fracture repair (-7 percent), inguinal hernia repair (-6 percent), upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (-5 percent), and sigmoidoscopy (-6 percent).
