Published: 27 Aug 2015

The latest National Vascular Registry progress report aims to complement the NHS trust and surgeon-level information for elective infra-renal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) repair and carotid endarterectomy published in 2014. The progress report provides an overview of care delivered by the NHS at a national level, and describes various developments within the National Vascular Registry.

The report presents findings in respect of:

  • Elective repair of infra-renal AAA
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Interventions for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

The National Vascular Registry measures the quality and outcomes of care for patients who undergo major vascular surgery in NHS hospitals in England and Wales. It aims to provide comparative information on the performance of NHS hospitals and thereby support local quality improvement as well as inform patients about the care delivered in the NHS. As such, all NHS hospitals in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are encouraged to participate in the Registry.
