Less than 1%: It should be less than (typically, much less than, these days) 1% overall for any institution. If it is more, perhaps they should not be performing the procedure.

Based on many factors; age, comorbodities, renal function, ect... It will estimate the risk of having surgery. For a healthy 50 yo it should be around 1% mortality if undergoing bypass.
