National Vascular Registry – AAA Unit Mortality Report 2013 Results

In January 2013, the National Vascular Registry was formed by the amalgamation of the National Vascular Database and the UK Carotid Interventions Audit projects. The Registry was commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP) and is based in the Clinical Effectiveness Unit of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The aim of the Registry is to measure the quality and outcomes of care for patients who undergo vascular surgery in England and Wales. Data on abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has also been collected since 2005 via the same webtool as carotid endarterectomies as part of a broad quality improvement programme undertaken by the Vascular Society in collaboration with other organisations. One part of this programme was the Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Quality Improvement Programme funded by the Health Foundation (an independent charity) which ran from 2008 until 2013. During this time, the mortality rate following elective infra-renal AAA repair in the United Kingdom fell from 7% to 2.4%. The results presented in the spreadsheets below are for patients undergoing an elective repair of their infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) between January 2010 and December 2012.
