Cardiology societies to combine registries

Two professional cardiology societies are partnering to create a registry that includes data on patients with vascular diseases, according to an article in the Journal of Invasive Cardiology.

Although the American College of Cardiology and Society for Vascular Surgery each have their own registries, they'll merge "the best elements of both registries to create the premier vascular clinical registry," said Jens Jorgensen, MD, medical director of the Society for Vascular Surgery's registry.

The new registry collaboration will offer comprehensive data about patient characteristics, outcomes and the use and effectiveness of different treatments.
