Abstract: INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: This article presents the findings of the 2012 Spanish Catheter Ablation Registry. METHODS: Data were collected in 2 ways: retrospectively using a standardized questionnaire, and prospectively using a central database. Each participating center selected its own preferred method of data collection. RESULTS: Seventy-four Spanish centers voluntarily contributed data to the survey. A total of 11 042 ablation procedures were analyzed, averaging 149 (103) per center. The 3 main conditions treated were atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (n=2842; 25.7%), cavotricuspid isthmus (n=2485; 23%), and accessory pathways (n=1999; 18%). Atrial fibrillation was the fourth most common substrate treated (n=1852; 17%), representing a slight increase. The number of ventricular arrhythmia ablation procedures was similar to that of 2011, but there was a decrease in procedures for ventricular tachycardia associated with postinfarction scarring. The overall success rate was 94.9%, major complications occurred in 1.9%, and the overall mortality rate was 0.04%. CONCLUSIONS: Data from the 2012 registry show that the number of ablations performed continued to increase. Overall, they also show a high success rate and a low number of complications. Ablation of complex substrates continued to increase, particularly in the case of atrial fibrillation. Full English text available from:www.revespcardiol.org/en.
