New Guidelines Consistent with Silk Road Medical Certification Process
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today announced the In-Press release of a clinical competence statement on training and credentialing for TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR), written by the SVS Writing Committee. The competence statement, published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery, provides recommendations on physician training and skills required to obtain and maintain clinical privileges to perform TCAR within an institution.
The statement outlines three credentialing pathways for physicians, providing multiple options to obtain the requisite endovascular and surgical skills. The physician training recommendations in the statement vary based on prior experience and, importantly, are consistent with the training program offered by Silk Road Medical. Recent data released in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons demonstrated the effectiveness of this curriculum with similar results in all major outcomes for TCAR among newly trained surgeons as well as their more experienced counterparts. The SVS guidance also cited evidence supporting the use of TCAR, including the low stroke and death rates observed in the PROOF and ROADSTER studies, as well as outcomes from the TCAR Surveillance Project, which demonstrate the broad applicability of TCAR in real world practice.
