Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia and is becoming a major public health burden in developed and developing countries. On top of increasing mortality, AF induces several disabling symptoms such as palpitations, decreased exercise tolerance, and pulmonary congestion. In addition, AF patients may experience ischemic heart disease (IHD) symptoms and signs, attributable to alterations of the myocardial perfusion, even in the absence of classical obstructive coronary artery disease. Despite the relevant epidemiology of both conditions, however, the mechanisms proposed and the effects of the relationship of AF and IHD are, to date, under-assessed.

Aim of the present Special Issue is to invite experts in the field to explore the following aspects of the AF/IHD correlation:

Goal of this issue: 

- atrial fibrillation and ischemic heart disease epidemiology

- heart rhythm and coronary blood flow physiology
- computational models of coronary circulation during atrial fibrillation
- anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation and ischemi heart disease
- Clinical case of ischemic heart disease in patients with atrial fibrillation

Thanks to your great contributions, in the opinion of the Guest Editor, the present Special Issue will provide valuable insights.
