This population-based registry study tracked over 10,000 patients operated on during 1987-1999. The procedure rate increased from 4.7 to 13.2 per 100,000 inhabitants annually, with 30-day mortality of 0.35%. By capturing all stenosis surgeries in Sweden for over a decade, this paper provides a unique comprehensive epidemiological overview.
