In line with its published processes and methods, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) considered a wide range of published evidence in developing its draft recommendations. This included high-quality United Kingdom and international randomised trials as well as a range of observational studies, some based on national and regional registries. Up-to-date registry data from the UK National Vascular Registry (2017) were among the key inputs on which the health economic model developed to support decision-making relating to the use of endovascular and open surgical repair of aneurysms relied.

Full details of included evidence are available in the draft documentation which is available at the following link:

NICE is considering the comments received during consultation and expects to publish its final recommendations to the National Health Service in November 2018.
