          Introducción y objetivos

          Se describen los resultados del Registro Español de Ablación correspondientes al año 2019.


          La recogida de datos ha sido retrospectiva mediante la cumplimentación de un formulario de recogida de datos por cada uno de los centros participantes.


          Se han analizado los datos enviados por 102 centros, con un total de 18.549 procedimientos de ablación (el mayor de este registro) y con una media de 181,9 ± 137,0 y una mediana de 144,5 procedimientos por centro. Se consolida la ablación de fibrilación auricular como el sustrato abordado con más frecuencia (n = 5.164; 27,8%), que aumenta la distancia respecto al resto de sustratos. El segundo sustrato es el istmo cavotricuspídeo (n = 3.925; 21,1%) y el tercero, la taquicardia por reentrada intranodular (n = 3.768; 20,3%), desbancada del segundo puesto por aquel. La tasa total de éxito fue de nuevo del 91%; la de complicaciones mayores, del 1,9% y la mortalidad, del 0,03%. Se consolida el uso de navegadores (el 44,5% del total de procedimientos) y de los catéteres con tecnología de contacto en la fibrilación auricular (84,8%) y la taquicardia ventricular (90%). El 1,5% de las ablaciones se realizaron en pacientes pediátricos.


          El Registro Español de Ablación recoge de manera sistemática sin interrupción los procedimientos de ablación realizados en España, y permite observar a lo largo de los años un aumento progresivo del número de ablaciones manteniendo una alta tasa de éxito y unos porcentajes bajos de complicaciones.

          Introduction and objectives

          This report presents the findings of the 2019 Spanish Catheter Ablation Registry.


          Data collection was retrospective. A standardized questionnaire was filled by each of the participant centers.


          Data sent by 102 centers were analyzed, with a total number of ablation procedures performed of 18 549 (the highest historically reported in this registry) for a mean of 181.9 ± 137.0 and a median of 144.5 procedures per center. The ablation targets most frequently treated were atrial fibrillation (n = 5164; 27.8%), cavotricuspid isthmus (n = 3925; 21,1%) and atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (n = 3768; 20,3%). A new peak is observed in the ablation of atrial fibrillation, increasing the distance from the other substrates. The overall success rate was again 91%. The rate of major complications was 1.9%, and the mortality rate was 0.03%. An electroanatomic mapping system was used in 44.5% of all procedures, with contact force-sensing irrigated catheters become the preferred for complex substrates, as atrial fibrillation (84,8%) or ventricular tachycardia (around 90%). 1.5% of the ablations were performed in pediatric patients.


          The Spanish Catheter Ablation Registry enrolls systematically and uninterruptedly the ablation procedures performed in Spain, showing a progressive increasing in the number of ablations over the years with a high success rate and low percentages of complications.

            Although radiofrequency (RF) ablation has long been the standard of care for atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation, cryoballoon technology has emerged as a feasible approach with promising results. Prospective multicenter registry data referring to both ablation technologies in AF ablation are lacking so far.

              A decade of catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias in Sweden: ablation practices and outcomes

              Abstract Aims Catheter ablation is considered the treatment of choice for many tachyarrhythmias, but convincing ‘real-world’ data on efficacy and safety are lacking. Using Swedish national registry data, the ablation spectrum, procedural characteristics, as well as ablation efficacy and reported adverse events are reported. Methods and Results Consecutive patients (≥18 years of age) undergoing catheter ablation in Sweden between 01 January 2006 and 31 December 2015 were included in the study. Follow-up (repeat ablation and vital status) was collected through 31 December 2016. A total of 26 642 patients (57 ± 15 years, 62% men), undergoing a total of 34 428 ablation procedures were included in the study. In total, 4034 accessory pathway/Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome (12%), 7358 AV-nodal re-entrant tachycardia (21%), 1813 atrial tachycardia (5.2%), 5481 typical atrial flutter (16%), 11 916 atrial fibrillation (AF, 35%), 2415 AV-nodal (7.0%), 581 premature ventricular contraction (PVC, 1.7%), and 964 ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablations (2.8%) were performed. Median follow-up time was 4.7 years (interquartile range 2.7–7.0). The spectrum of treated arrhythmias changed over time, with a gradual increase in AF, VT, and PVC ablation (P < 0.001). Decreasing procedural times and utilization of fluoroscopy with time, were seen for all arrhythmia types. The rates of repeat ablation differed between ablation types, with the highest repeat ablation seen in AF (41% within 3 years). The rate of reported adverse events was low (n = 595, 1.7%). Death in the immediate period following ablation was rare (n = 116, 0.34%). Conclusion Catheter ablations have shifted towards more complex procedures over the past decade. Fluoroscopy time has markedly decreased and the efficacy of catheter ablation seems to improve for AF.
