The article reports on the study on the time-dependent cumulative incidence for undergoing planned surgery for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) through unplanned emergency admission on a certain wait-list week between two categories of wait-list size. It also concludes that the length of a wait list at registration had no effect on the urgency of a patient undergoing CABG through unplanned emergency admission.
