2. For a summary of the Enhanced Recovery Pathway. Audit and outcome measurement The standardisation of pathways facilitates audit. Instead of multiple teams functioning in different ways, making it difficult to detect the processes that work best, the use of clearly defined pathways aids measurement and the ability to detect whether changes in the pathway have a positive or negative effect on outcome. Data to be collected can include length of stay, complication rate, re-admission and re-operation rate, compliance with pathway elements (a measure of process) and patient satisfaction.

The stents themselves are increasingly ‘deliverable’ to tortuous arteries, resulting in increased procedural success. Technologies such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) permit the visualisation of the stents to ensure that deployment is optimised, which decreases the incidence of complications such as acute stent thrombosis and restenosis. Newer stent technology allows abluminal drug delivery with cytotoxic agents to decrease the risk of restenosis while the abluminal stent surface attracts endothelial progenitor cells with antibodies to encourage early re-endothelialisation of stent struts.
