Leadership

The STS/ACC TVT Registry™ is governed by a joint steering committee with representatives from the STS and ACC selected through each society’s standard selection process. Given the importance and broad function of the registry, it is important that representatives have current relevant clinical background and expertise with large data registries − and be recognized as leaders in their field.

The steering committee also includes representation from the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. An STS/ACC TVT Research and Publications Subcommittee and Stakeholder Advisory Group allow for input from multiple stakeholders, including industry trial sponsors, consumers, researchers, and health plans, bringing the wisdom of many constituencies to the registry.
