To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 9 July 2018 to Questions 159561 and 159563, what type of data has been included to inform the Abdominal aortic aneurysm: diagnosis and management draft guidance; and whether that data includes up-to-date registry data.
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:
