These findings are similar to those of the Quality in Australian Healthcare Study (QAHCS) and the Harvard Medical Practice Study (19,22).
As we used the same classification method and a closely-related peer review process for adverse events, the QAHCS study findings can be used as a historical control group of non UIA patients (19).
However, when compared to a prevalence of 46.8% of operating room adverse events in non-UIA patients (19) with 43% of preventable events cited in the QAHCS study, the number of preventable iatrogenic complications found amongst UIA patients in this study can be considered as higher (68% to 80%), underlining the good effectiveness of this clinical indicator.
