Abstract: INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The Working Group on Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Cardiology presents the yearly report on the data collected for the Spanish registry. METHODS: Institutions provided their data voluntarily (online) and the information was analyzed by the Working Group’s Steering Committee. RESULTS: Data were provided by 109 hospitals (71 public and 38 private) that mainly treat adults. There were 136 912 diagnostic procedures, 120 441 of which were coronary angiograms, slightly fewer than the year before, with a rate of 2979 diagnostic studies per million population. Percutaneous coronary interventions increased slightly to 65 909 procedures, for a rate of 1434 interventions per million population. Of the 99 110 stents implanted, 62% were drug-eluting stents. In all, 17 125 coronary interventions were carried out during the acute phase of myocardial infarction, 10.5% more than in 2011, representing 25.9% of the total number of coronary interventions. The most frequently performed intervention for adult congenital heart disease was atrial septal defect closure (292 procedures). The use of percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty continued to decline (258 procedures) and percutaneous aortic valve implantations increased by only 10% in 2012. CONCLUSIONS: In 2012, the only increase in hemodynamic activity occurred in the field of ST-elevation myocardial infarction, and the increasing trend had slowed for percutaneous aortic valve implantation and other procedures affecting structure.
