The following technology assessments and clinical guidelines were released by NICE in April 2017:
- Medtech Innovation Briefing for video-assisted anal fistulae treatment. It is a surgical kit used for treating anal fistulae.
- Clinical Guidelines for alcohol-use disorders and irritable bowel syndrome in adults were updated
- Interventional Procedure Guidance: Minimally invasive sacroiliac joint fusion surgery for chronic sacroiliac pain. This procedure should only be used with special arrangements for clinical governance, consent and audit or research due to inadequate quantity and quality of current evidence on the safety and efficacy.
