The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) develops clinical practice guidelines to aid its 4,500 members and their patients in the decision-making process. SVS committees draw upon systematic reviews of the available evidence to inform its key recommendations. Reviews are performed by the Knowledge and Encounter Research (KER) Unit of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minn. The methodology used for SVS clinical practice guidelines can be found in the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
