Abstract

Introduction and objectives This report describes the findings of the 2016 Spanish Catheter Ablation Registry. Methods Data were retrospectively collected by means of a standardized questionnaire completed by each of the participating centers. Results Data were collected from 83 centers. A total of 13 482 ablation procedures were performed (the highest historically reported in this registry), with a mean of 162.4 ± 116 and a median of 136 procedures per center. The most frequently treated ablation targets were atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (n = 3058; 22.7%), atrial fibrillation (n = 2953; 21.9%), and cavotricuspid isthmus (n = 2892; 21.4%). There was a peak in ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation, which, for the first time in this registry, became the second most treated substrate. After exclusion of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia with underlying heart disease, the overall success rate was 86%. The rate of major complications was 2.3%, and the mortality rate was 0.05%. In all, 2.7% of the ablations were performed in pediatric patients. Conclusions The Spanish Catheter Ablation Registry systematically and uninterruptedly records the ablation procedures performed in Spain, showing a progressive rise in the number of ablations performed, with a high success rate and a low percentage of complications.
