abstract Since 1987 the Swiss Working Group Interventional Cardiology of the Swiss Society of Cardiology coordinates the assessment of invasive diagnostic and therapeutic heart interventions across Switzerland. The aim of this report is to summarise the data for the year 2019, which was collected using a standardised questionnaire. In 2019, 37 centres performed a total of 57,975 coronary angiographies. In 48.2% of these cases a subsequent percutaneous coronary intervention was performed. Among a broad spectrum of structural heart interventions, we have observed a constant growth of transcatheter aortic valve implantations, and a total of 1912 transcatheter aortic valve implantations were performed in 2019.
