The working group Coronary Circulation of the European Society of Cardiology conducts, with the support of the national societies of cardiology, an annual survey on cardiac interventions in Europe.
This report is the fourth consecutive summary on cardiac interventions in Europe and gives an overview of interventional cardiology activities during 1995 in 30 member countries of the European Society of Cardiology, representing a population of 550 million people.
Coronary angiography A total of 1 065 485 diagnostic coronary angiograms were reported, a 15% increase compared with 1994.
The mean incidence of coronary angiograms increased to 1937 per 106 inhabitants, ranging from 4667 per 106 inhabitants in Germany to 67 per 106 inhabitants in Romania.
Coronary angioplasty A total of 278 982 coronary angioplasty (PTCA) procedures were reported, an increase of 24% compared with 1994.
The mean incidence of coronary angioplasty per capita was 507 per 106 inhabitants, ranging from 1358 per 106 inhabitants in Germany to 12 per 106 inhabitants in Romania.
The ratio of PTCAs per coronary angiogram was 0.26, ranging from 0.40 in the Netherlands to 0.08 in Cyprus.
Ad hoc PTCA (combined diagnostic angiography and PTCA) accounted for 24% of all PTCA cases.
The majority (85%) of PTCA procedures were restricted to a single vessel.
Coronary stenting Coronary stents were used in 80 383 coronary interventions, an increase of 272% compared with 1994, representing the fastest growth. (...)
