The main objective of this 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.
27 countries are taking part in the long-term phase of this registry, which was launched in February 2012.
The aim of enrolling approximately 3,000 patients was exceeded in April 2015. Today the one and three year follow-up are ongoing.
Prior to the deployment of the long-term registry a pilot registry was conducted, between September 2010 and June 2012, with a one-year follow-up. 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.10 countries enrolled 1410 patients in this pilot, of which the first results were presented at the ESC Congress 2011 in Paris.
Each registry is conducted by an Executive Committee (scientific experts) and a Steering Committee (national coordinators), and the whole programme is conducted by the EORP Oversight Committee.
The current Executive Committee is chaired by Nikolaos Dagres.
