Background. This report describes the findings of the 2017 Catheter Ablation Registry of the Italian Association of Arrhythmology and Cardiac Pacing (AIAC). Methods. Data collection was retrospective. A standardized questionnaire was completed by each of the participating centers. Results. A total of 15 601 ablation procedures were performed by 91 institutions, with a mean of 184 ± 213 procedures per center. The most frequently treated arrhythmia was atrial fibrillation (34%), followed by atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (25%) and common atrial flutter (14%). About 10% of overall ablation procedures were performed in patients with ventricular arrhythmias. On-site cardiothoracic surgery was available in 42% of the centers performing ablation and in 49% of the centers performing atrial fibrillation ablation. In most patients, the ablation procedure was guided by a three-dimensional mapping system, and in 15% of patients a near-zero X-ray strategy was used. Conclusions. The Italian Catheter Ablation Registry systematically collected 1-year data on ablation procedures performed in Italy, revealing that atrial fibrillation is the most commonly treated arrhythmia in the ablation centers with an increasing number of patients treated for ventricular tachycardia.

Abstract

Background. This report describes the findings of the 2017 Catheter Ablation Registry of the Italian Association of Arrhythmology and Cardiac Pacing (AIAC). Methods. Data collection was retrospective. A standardized questionnaire was completed by each of the participating centers. Results. A total of 15 601 ablation procedures were performed by 91 institutions, with a mean of 184 ± 213 procedures per center. The most frequently treated arrhythmia was atrial fibrillation (34%), followed by atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (25%) and common atrial flutter (14%). About 10% of overall ablation procedures were performed in patients with ventricular arrhythmias. On-site cardiothoracic surgery was available in 42% of the centers performing ablation and in 49% of the centers performing atrial fibrillation ablation. In most patients, the ablation procedure was guided by a three-dimensional mapping system, and in 15% of patients a near-zero X-ray strategy was used. Conclusions. The Italian Catheter Ablation Registry systematically collected 1-year data on ablation procedures performed in Italy, revealing that atrial fibrillation is the most commonly treated arrhythmia in the ablation centers with an increasing number of patients treated for ventricular tachycardia.
