Ms Yadav is on the editorial board for the Annals of Thoracic Surgeons. She is a member of the programme committee for ISMICS and the Adult Cardiac Domain for EACTS. She is actively involved in planning and contributing to the annual meetings of these international societies. She is also an invited speaker at national and international meetings.
Education and Experience
Ms Yadav completed her Cardiac Surgical training in the North West Thames Deanery between 2004 and 2011. She worked at the Heart Hospital, St George’s Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, Harefield Hospital and Royal Brompton Hospital as a Specialist Registrar. She successfully completed the FRCS (CTh) examination in October 2008 and is registered on the Cardiothoracic Surgery Specialist Register. As part of her training, Ms Yadav completed a fellowship at the Robert Bosch Krankenhaus in Stuttgart, Germany under Professor Ulrich Franke, with special expertise in Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery. She also holds a PhD from Imperial College, London. On completion of training, she was appointed as locum Consultant at the Royal Brompton Hospital and worked in this role between October 2011 and March 2013. She was appointed as a substantive Consultant at The Royal Brompton Hospital in April 2013.
Ms Yadav is an adult cardiac surgeon with special interest in minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery and works closely with surgical colleagues and other team members to deliver a successful EndoACAB programme, which is one of its kind in the UK. Her clinical interests also include total arterial sequential grafting using bilateral IMA and endoscopic conduit harvesting. Ms Yadav’s other clinical interests includes mitral valve surgery and transcatheter therapy.
Ms Yadav also has a keen interest in leadership, human motivation and emotional intelligence at work and its impact on team working, work culture and patient experience and safety. She is also involved in mentorship programmes for school students with interest in a career in medicine.
Ms Yadav is married with two children and enjoys outdoor activities, running and gardening.

Risk-adjusted in-hospital survival rate
This graph shows the “in hospital” survival rate of patients who are operated on by the individual surgeon/unit you have selected. “In hospital” means time the patient is in the hospital where they have had their operation. It does not include any time that patients may have spent in other hospitals, either before or after their heart operation.
The data has been through a complex methodology, including the variations in patient risk factors in order to give you a comparative base from which to work from. This means that the survival rates take into account the type and risk of patients being operated on for each surgeon/unit. This is known as risk adjusted survival.
The vertical axis shows the GMC number of the surgeon or the Hospital identifier. In brackets is the total number of patients operated on by the surgeon/unit and the percentage of patients for whom the survival is known. The horizontal axis is the percentage survival. The dashed vertical line shows the risk adjusted survival rate for the UK as a whole. The solid black horizontal line represents the surgeon/unit. What is important here is that the horizontal line crosses the vertical dashed line. If this occurs, it means that the surgeon/unit are within the expected outcomes given the case-mix and risk factors of the patients they operate on.
The icons that sit on the horizontal line should give you more information about your surgeon/team.
The open square is the survival rate with no risk adjustments:
The X is the predicted survival with adjustments
The solid dot is the survival probability after the methodology has been applied.
- If the solid dot is red it means survival is worse than expected
- If the solid dot is black it means that it is within limits
- If the solid dot is green it means that there is significantly higher survival than expected
There is a lot of information on these plots, but the takeaway message is that if the solid black line crosses the dashed vertical line then the survival rate for the surgeon/unit is within expectations and that there is no reason for any concern.
