Electrophysiology centre at University medical centre Ljubljana is the largest EP centre in the county. We are a tertiary-care and national referral centre for the complex arrhythmia management and CIED implantations. There are two EP labs. Both are equipped with 3-D navigation system (CARTO 3, version 6 with Confidence and Ablation index modules, and NavX Precision), and Cryoablation system. More than 600 ablation procedures per annum are performed by a staff of 5 electrophysiologists. A whole range of arrhythmia treatment, including pediatric, extensive AF programme (ICE based fluoroless, and cryoballoon procedures), and endocardial/epicardial ablation of VT in structural heart disease, is provided. In addition, in cooperation with cardiovascular surgeons, we provide a hybrid endoscopic surgical and catheter ablation of long-lasting persistent AF. There are approximately 700 CIED implantations performed annually including pacemakers, ICDs (transvenous and subcutaneous), CRTs, leadless PMs, and only recently His bundle pacing. We regularly provide an EP-fellowship programme for invasive cardiac electrophysiology within the cardiology training programme.
