Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
“New guidelines on the management of AF were recently published by the ESC (2) and we wanted to find out how clinicians were adhering to them. Our registry was a survey of their implementation as well as the uptake of catheter ablation, new antithrombotic drugs and new anti arrhythmic agents, amongst other data.”
“This registry allowed a timely assessment of the clinical scenario in Europe regarding the management of AF. The follow up period of the survey will allow the evaluation of morbidity/mortality over time and also the comparison between outcomes in European regions with different patterns of practice and the dissimilar adherence to ESC guidelines.”
“The pilot registry allowed us to measure current disease management strategies. We look forward to a more comprehensive assessment of the management and treatment of AF in all ESC member countries once we have the results of the EORP-AF general long term registry. We have high hopes to be in a position to announce results from 2015 onwards,” concluded Professor Lip.ENDS

About the ESCThe European Society of Cardiology (ESC) represents more than 80 000 cardiology professionals across Europe and the Mediterranean. Its mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe.About EORPThe EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) was launched by the ESC in 2009. The aim of this programme of Surveys & Registries is to provide a better understanding of medical practice based on observational data collected with robust methodological procedures.About EHRAThe European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) is a registered branch of the ESC. Its aim is to improve the quality of life of the European population by reducing the impact of cardiac arrhythmias and reduce sudden cardiac death.
