All data points were extracted directly from a recent multicenter, multinational study of disability-free survival after surgery,1  defined as survival with a score of less than 25% on the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0, or an increase of less than 8% compared with their preoperative assessment. MI = myocardial infarction.
