Vascular Registries

The Vascular Quality Initiative® is designed to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness and cost of vascular health care by collecting and exchanging information. It consists of a distributed network of regional quality groups that function under an AHRQ-listed Patient Safety Organization using the M2S cloud‑based data collection and reporting system. It is available to all providers of vascular health care and their respective institutions.
The VQI collects pre-operative risk factors, intra-procedural variables, post-procedural outcomes, and one year follow-up data for eleven major vascular procedures:
    •    Carotid Artery Stent
    •    Carotid Endarterectomy
    •    Endovascular AAA Repair
    •    Open AAA Repair
    •    Hemodialysis Access
    •    Inferior Vena Cava Filter
    •    Infra-Inguinal Bypass
    •    Supra-Inguinal Bypass
    •    Lower Extremity Amputation
    •    Peripheral Vascular Intervention
    •    Thoracic and Complex EVAR
