The BCIS Structural Working Group was formed in 2017 to meet the demands of the increasing practice of structural cardiac intervention, in particular the exponential growth of TAVI as an intervention for aortic stenosis, which is continuing to grow worldwide. In addition to TAVI, there is now a large number of other structural procedures and techniques (each with several CE marked devices) which need oversight from BCIS as the UK Professional Society.
The group includes representatives from the Heart Rhythm Society, the Society for Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons, British Congenital Cardiac Association, NICE and NICOR, as well as individuals representing each of the mainstream structural procedures. The purpose of the group is to improve the quality and practice of structural intervention in the UK by developing position statements, guidelines and research/innovation. We aim to improve the quality of structural intervention in the UK and address inequity of provision across the country. To achieve this the group works with other BCIS working groups, Professional Societies, NHS commissioners and regulatory bodies to highlight any problems and provide expert consensus opinion on how to overcome these.
