NVR eNewsletter – 2016 Issue #2

Changes to the NVR IT system

We have made a number of changes to the NVR IT system in January 2016. These include:

  • The ability to enter a major amputation following a lower limb bypass, where the procedures occurred within the same hospital admission. More information about this can be found on our website.
  • The ability to show results in the online reporting tables by primary operator only.
  • The upload facility has been made available to the NVR project team.
  • Various changes to the AAA repair, amputation, bypass and carotid endarterectomy datasets.

Full information regarding these changes can be found in this document on our website.
