Clinical epidemiology of patients undergoing AFA procedures




Objectives and characteristics of the study

The main objective of this sentinel registry is to describe the clinical epidemiology of patients undergoing an Atrial Fibrillation Ablation (AFA) procedure, and the diagnostic/ therapeutic processes (including technical aspects, ways to measure the success of the procedure and acute and chronic outcomes/ complications of the procedure) applied in these patients.


  • Describe the demographic, clinical, and biological characteristics of patients undergoing a first Atrial Fibrillation Ablation (AFA) procedure in a representative setting of cardiology centres
