Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) – 2020 summary report

Reports | Published: 10 Dec 2020

The report presented below is a focused view of a few specific metrics for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedures  and interventional activity that aim to address quality improvement. It is based on an annual survey and an extract of PCI specific data dated 25-10-2019. The annual survey is sent to all centres that perform percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in the United Kingdom (UK). There was a 100% response to this survey across the UK.

In 2018/19 there were 118 PCI centres in the UK, which is exactly the same as in the previous year. For the first time since records began in 1991, there has been a slight reduction in the number of PCI procedures performed. Total PCI procedures performed has fallen by 2.5% to 100,294. This equates to a reduced rate of 1,510 procedures per million population (pmp) for the UK. This change in activity, however, has been heterogeneous across the UK countries. While rates have fallen in England (-3%), Northern Ireland (-6.6%) and Scotland (-0.4%), they have increased in Wales by 7.5% pmp.
