1 doctor agrees
In brief: Quite high
Depends on risk factors going in! the operation itself carries good results in general, but smokers, diabetics, obese have increased risks to have the problems and to recover.

In brief: Excellent
All comers: 98-99% over age 80 : 95% with significant lung or kidney disease: lower (depends on the specifics).
Emergency surgery also lowers the survival compared with elective surgery.
