NVR: Outcomes after Elective Repair of Infra-renal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm 2013
Published: 04 Nov 2013
This is the second report produced by the National Vascular Registry (NVR) on outcomes following elective infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery in the United Kingdom. It builds on the Quality Improvement Programme (QIP) undertaken by the Vascular Society to improve outcomes after AAA surgery.
This report presents information on patients undergoing an elective repair of an infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) between January 2010 and December 2012 in the National Health Service (NHS). It includes all UK NHS acute trusts and Health Boards currently providing this vascular surgery, and gives the number of procedures performed by NHS organisations, the proportion of patients who died before discharge after their surgery (post-operative mortality) and the risk-adjusted mortality rate.
