  • Documentation of hospital mortality, serious but non-fatal complications (stroke, TIA, myocardial infarction, resuscitation), and complications caused by bleedings (serious as well as moderate) [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of medication therapy at hospital discharge [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of the 1-year mortality, serious but non-fatal complications (stroke, TIA, myocardial infarction, resuscitation), of heavy bleedings, of phrenicus pareses, PV-stenoses, or fistulas [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of the absence of relapse and of symptomatology after one year [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of needed interventions (implantation of either pacemaker, ICD or CRT, revascularization, a further ablation) during the first year after ablation [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of hospitalizations during the first year after ablation [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Documentation of medication therapy after 12 months [ Time Frame: 01/06/2008-12/31/2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
