Participate to the Registry on Cardiac-Oncology Toxicity
The new ESC Registry on Cardiac-Oncology Toxicity initiated by EACVI and HFA is a worldwide observational study on breast cancer patients presenting to imaging labs and followed by cardiology or oncology Centres. The main purpose of this study is to examine clinical, imaging and treatment practices for ADRC in Europe and beyond. The registry is open to all centres who would like to participate.
The Chronic Ischemic Cardiovascular Disease Long-Term Registry launched soon

The CICD registry is being undertaken to improve knowledge about the care of patients with CAD and/or PAD. The pilot registry provided important data on demographic and clinical profile of the patient population suffering from CAD and/or PAD, current treatment in daily practice...

Europe needs reliable data on cardiovascular (CV) disease and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is the body which should provide such data. Registries are essential to assess CV epidemiology, diagnostic/therapeutic processes and adherence to Guidelines.

In 2009 the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) was launched. The aim of this programme of registries is to provide a better understanding of medical practice, based on observational data collected with more robust methodological procedures.

The EORP in figures

  • 20 different registries
  • more than 1 000 centres with 70 000 patients
  • more than 100 publications from EHS/EORP
  • Today, over 70 countries are already participating in at least one study & we invite you to join!

The main features of the EURObservational Research Programme

  • Use of appropriate methodological procedures
  • Network of volunteer centres appointed by ESC constituent bodies
  • Use on-line electronic Case Report Form (CRF) allowing user friendly web based data entry
  • Full involvement of the ESC National Societies (NS) and relevant ESC Constituent Bodies

Clinical Cardiology Registries


General to assess the management of diseases of major impact in terms of incidence. These registries will provide epidemiological data and provide reports on the application of clinical practice guidelines recommendations.


Sentinel to assess the impact of interventional procedures and imaging techniques.


Special to assess epidemiology and management of rarer conditions as arising critical issues in terms of public health (severity of the disease, stringent clinical needs, costs).


Prevention to assess cardiovascular risk factors epidemiology and prevention measures
