The aim of the National Vascular Registry (NVR) is to measure the quality and outcomes of care for patients who undergo major vascular surgery in NHS hospitals, and so support vascular units in the UK to improve the quality of the care received by patients.
The NVR aims to improve the care of five main vascular procedures:
- Repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)
- Carotid endarterectomy
- Lower limb angioplasty
- Lower limb bypass
- Lower limb amputation
