Technologies scoping report 2

What is the published evidence of an association between hospital volume and outcome in elective carotid endarterectomy surgery?

In response to an enquiry from the vascular services review steering group

The following questions were scoped:

1. What evidence is there for an association between hospital volume and outcome in elective carotid endarterectomy surgery?

2. What evidence is there to establish the minimum number of carotid endarterectomy procedures a vascular unit should undertake in order to achieve optimal surgical outcomes?

The content of this technologies scoping report was accurate and based upon the most up to date evidence available at the date of first publication. Readers are asked to consider that new trials and technologies may have emerged since first publication and the evidence presented may no longer be current.
