Description

Summary

This is a prospective multi-center international registry. The objective of this registry is to collect prospective data on patients undergoing catheter ablation for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) and Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC). The registry will be used for clinical monitoring, research, and quality improvement purposes.

Official Title

An International VT Ablation Center Collaborative Group (IVTCC): A Multicenter Ventricular Tachycardia Catheter Ablation Registry

Details

Sudden cardiac death (SCD), predominantly due to ventricular tachyarrhythmias, is a leading cause of mortality in the United States and around the world. Catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias has proven efficacious in reducing the burden of arrhythmias and reducing implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) shocks. The aim of this study is to create a prospective international database registry that will allow for better assessment of the outcomes of catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias. The registry, with approximately 30 participating centers, will help to identify the overall success rates and associated benefits of the procedure and provide more comprehensive data on understudied populations and treatment.
