CIRSE takes an active role in the development and implementation of research in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology. The society carries out registries to help bolster the evidence-base which our dynamic specialism relies on. This is done either self-dependently or in collaboration with our fellow societies.
With the establishment of the Interventional Network in 2006 CIRSE initiated a co-operative network of European centres dedicated to education and research in IR. In general the society approaches research with an open mind and its goal is to encourage participation in any research of significance to Interventional Radiology.
CIRSE has published the final report resulting from the CIRSE Vascular Closure Device Registry in the CVIR journal and on the CIRSE website. This registry was designed to help evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the routine use of closure devices in Interventional Radiology.

A new registry concerned with the retrieval of caval filters was initiated by CIRSE in 2010. The purpose of the registry is to examine the success of filter retrieval among the different filter types and assess the potential complications that are associated with such procedures. The registry is due to close soon and results are expected to be presented at CIRSE 2013.
If you are interested in specific research projects or if you would like to propose the establishment of research activities and you are searching for potential partners, please contact the CIRSE Central Office at email@example.com.
