The National Vascular Registry (NVR) was established to measure the quality and outcomes of care for adult patients who undergo major vascular procedures in NHS hospitals, and to support vascular services to improve the quality of care for these patients.
The aim of this report is to describe the procedural care provided by NHS vascular units, and outcomes delivered to patients. It contains information on the process and outcomes of care for:
(i) patients undergoing a revascularisation procedure (angioplasty/stent or bypass) or major amputation for lower limb peripheral arterial disease (PAD),
(ii) patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy,
(iii) patients undergoing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair.
