Vascular Surgery

A prospective registry that represents a regional collaborative effort to assess and improve quality of care and outcomes of patients undergoing a range of vascular procedures:

  • Open Abdominal Aneurysm Repair (OAAA)
  • Endovascular Abdominal Aneurysm Repair (EVAR), Infrarenal, Suprarenal, and Juxtarenal Repairs
  • Open Bypass Procedures, Upper and Lower Extremity
  • Open Thrombectomy Procedures, Upper and Lower Extremity
  • Carotid Stenting (CAS)
  • Carotid Endarterectomy (CEA)

Our Scope
