SCAAR (Swedish Coronary Angiography and Angioplasty Register) [1]

The SCAAR is a Swedish national registry that contains relevant medical data on consecutive patients from 29 hospitals in Sweden at which coronary angiography and PCI (percutaneous coronary interventions) are performed. The registry was established in 1989. It is sponsored by the National Board of Health and Welfare and is independent of funding from industry. The data technology was developed by, and is administered by the Uppsala Clinical Research Center ([2]). Since 2001, SCAAR has been Internet-based, with recording of data online through a Web interface. Data are transferred in an encrypted format to a central server at the Uppsala Clinical Research Center. All consecutive patients undergoing coronary angiography or PCI in Sweden are registered in this database which provides a unique opportunity for prospective observational studies within the field of interventional cardiology.
