The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published its verdict on the safety and efficacy of five new interventional procedures. Three of these were deemed to have sufficient evidence to support their use in the National Health Service. These are coblation tonsillectomy, percutaneous vertebroplasty and radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins. The uncertainty surrounding the other two - stent-graft placement in abdominal aortic aneurysms and stereotactic radiosurgery for trigeminal neuralgia using a gamma knife - means that clinicians wishing to provide these will need to perform them under the strictest approval, consent, and clinical audit conditions.
