This surgical registry is a collaboration established to promote the care of vascular patients in Sri Lanka.

We aim to gather data which can be used to improve the management of vascular surgical patients by describing short and medium term outcomes and complications after vascular surgeries, and the perioperative use of antibiotics and blood products after the same surgery in the Teaching Hospital of Sri Lanka.

  2. To track the outcome of patients attending Teaching Hospitals in Sri Lanka after vascular surgeries .
  3. To contribute data to allow for national and international comparisons and benchmarking vis renal registries in developed countries such as the ANZDATA of Australia and New Zealand, UK Renal Registry (UKRR), European Renal Registry (ERA-EDTA RR) and UNited States Renal Data System

Method of data collection

Data will be extracted from Bead Head Tickets (BHT) by one or more trained pre-intern doctors. After explaining the procedure and benefits, if patent agreed, data will be collected by interviewing the patient (preoperatively where possible for elective admissions and post operatively for all patients), and where the patient is not able to provide information, an available relative. Electronic data collection tools will be used for data collection. Post-operative morbidity will be assessed on 3 and 7 days post op, at discharge from hospital, 30 and 90 days following live discharge.
