Objectives and characteristics of the study
The primary objective of the ESC-HF Pilot registry was to describe the clinical epidemiology of outpatients and inpatients with Heart Failure (HF) and the diagnostic/therapeutic processes applied across 12 participating European countries.
This pilot study was specifically aimed at validating the structure, performance, and quality of the data set, for continuing the survey into a permanent registry.
The Heart Failure pilot phase was launched in 2009. From October 2009 to May 2010, 5118 patients were included in this pilot registry, of which the first results were presented at the ESC Congress 2010. One-year follow-up of patients is now in progress.
12 countries were selected to participate in the pilot: Austria, Denmark, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, the Netherlands and Sweden.
