Position on appointment: Academic Clinical Fellow in Radiology
Sheffield Vascular Institute
Following the completion of the MRCS surgical exams, Stephen Goode completed a 3 year PhD in Vascular Surgery and was accepted onto the North Trent Radiology Training scheme working inthe Sheffield Vascular Institute, Northern General Hospital in Sheffield. Stephen's Scholarship project was based around carotid artery stenting (CAS), an interventional radiology technique that was introduced as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for the treatment of carotid stenoses. NICE Interventional procedures guidelines 191 recommend that all CAS cases undertaken in the UK should be entered onto the UK National Carotid Stenting Registry, a database held by the British Society of Interventional Radiologists. Stephen's work as a NICE Scholar was based around analysis of this national registry with the intent of publishing outcomes and analysis relevant to the NHS, through peer-reviewed publications and a formal registry report for the BSIR. The project was directly relevant to any future review of this procedure by NICE and was directly relevant to policy making guidance on the future of CAS.
