In addition to managing six national clinical cardiovascular audits, NICOR is also responsible for providing support for a number of health technology registries. 

We are collecting and analysing data from these new technologies to understand their effectiveness in the treatment of disease.


The UK Neuromodulation registry collects data on all spinal cord stimulator (SCS), intrathecal drug delivery implant for pain and spasticity (ITDD) and peripheral nerve stimulator (PNS)procedures performed in the UK. 


Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) was first performed in the UK in 2007. The UK TAVI registry has been collecting data to define the characteristics and clinical outcomes of the patient population treated with TAVI in every centre undertaking TAVI.
