METHODOLOGY
To make sure we handle the same definitions in each European country, procedures are defined by identifying the correct ICD-9 code. The
definition of this code is then used to find in each country the country-specific codes.
                                     When there is a clear code translation from the ICD-9 coding to the country-coding, the numbers are
Data-identification:
                                     identified in the country-databases.
                                     Some ICD-9 procedures are in other coding systems part of more general code. To filter out the defined
                                     procedure, we contact national organisations and/or opinion leaders and/or experts.
                                     When no country-specific codes are identified, TforG has conducted expert interviews to gather the
                                     data.
Validation:                          To validate the data, the following quality checks are taken into account:
                                     1) All data are double-checked and verified with national organizations.
                                     2) The procedures/population ratio is calculated for each country for comparison.
                                     3) The growth path for each procedure is compared to the prior year.
                                     4) When data-points deviate more than 10% from the prior year or when the procedures/population
                                     ratio from one country is completely different from the others, the database figures are checked with
                                     national organizations and/or opinion leaders.
                                     As the different country-databases in Europe also evolve, there can be a change in data identification
Change in process
                                     from one year to the next for a specific procedure.
                                     This can mean a new database is launched and/or new and more detailed codes are added.
                                     For procedures where the data-identification is handled differently compared to last year, the numbers
                                     are put in bold and italic. This also means that for these data-points some caution needs to be taken
                                     into account when comparing current figures with last year's figures.
                                     In France the coding system changed in 2005. Formerly hospitals were working with the Cdam coding
                                     (Catalogue des Actes Médicaux). Since 2005 hospitals are coding their procedures according to the
                                     CCAM (Classification Commune des Actes Médicaux). The CCAM coding system is a lot more detailed
                                     compared to the Cdam system. Becuase of this caution needs to be taken into account when
                                     comparing the French procedures with last year's figures.

Expert Interviews                    20-25 interviews per medical field
                                     (ENT, Cardiology, Orthopaedics, ... Departments) per country.
                                     TforG contacted the head doctors to give an overview on the number of
                                     surgical procedures (per type) performed per year in their department.
