Clinical Data Reports

The second annual ASCRS Clinical Survey of over 1,500 member surgeons was developed to measure key clinical opinions and practice patterns on the most compelling and controversial issues facing the ASCRS membership, this survey was completed during the 2014 ASCRS-ASOA Symposium & Congress. The survey covered 267 unique, measurable data elements on 11 different clinical areas by posing 134 questions. A total of 1,501 physicians responded to this survey. As a part of this survey, key data was captured on categorical product preferences by manufacturer, procedure volume, geographic location (down to the zip code for US doctors), age, practice setting, and other key parameters.
