This is the first Vascular Society public outcome report for elective Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) surgery in the United Kingdom.
The report contains information about unit outcomes for elective AAA repair between October 2008 and September 2010. The report is organised in the same way for each unit.
Data on outcomes is derived from surgeon collected data held on the Vascular Society’s National Vascular Database (NVD).
We are reporting raw data, unadjusted for case-mix. This should be born in mind when comparing outcomes between units.
We report data between 1/10/2008 and 30/09/2010. Cases included are those discharged from hospital or who died after AAA repair between these two dates.
