MTG8

The VeriQ system for assessing graft flow during coronary artery bypass graft surgery (MTG8)

  • Medical technologies guidance MTG8
  • Issued: November 2011
    • NICE has developed medical technology guidance on the VeriQ system for assessing graft flow during coronary artery bypass graft surgery.

      NICE medical technologies guidance addresses specific technologies notified to NICE by manufacturers. The ‘case for adoption’ recommendations are based on the claimed advantages of introducing the specific technology compared with current management of the condition. This ‘case’ is reviewed against the evidence submitted and expert advice. If the case for adopting the technology is supported, then the technology has been found to offer advantages to patients and the NHS. The specific recommendations on individual technologies are not intended to limit use of other relevant technologies which may offer similar advantages.

      NICE has said the VeriQ system can be used to check for problems with coronary artery bypass grafts that could be corrected during surgery. Hospital teams may want to use the VeriQ system because it can reduce problems after coronary artery bypass graft surgery that are caused by graft failure, and may reduce the length of time people need to stay in hospital.
