Carotid Interventions Audit (CIA)

The Carotid Interventions Audit was initiated in 2005 as a collaboration between the Vascular Society of Great Britain & Ireland and the Royal College of Physicians. Its purpose is to gather information about the pathway of care for patients with carotid stenosis who undergo carotid interventions (either surgery or endovascular stenting). Data allows the audit to follow the patient journey and compare clinical performance with national guidelines for care delivery.

What we are doing

The Carotid Interventions Audit has now moved to the Clinical Effectiveness Unit at the Royal College of Surgeons of England to be part of the National Vascular Registry Project, which is also funded by HQIP.

What we have produced

The Carotid Interventions Audit reports focussed on the process and outcomes of patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy.
