Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce this Special Issue of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine focusing on new frontiers in the epidemiology of arrhythmias. The last two decades have witnessed significant advances in our knowledge of the incidence and determinants of arrhythmias, as well as the consequences of disease on healthcare systems worldwide. In particular, the increasing recognition and diagnosis of arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, developments in the role of screening in athletes and the elderly, and the recognition of health behaviors and lifestyle factors as risk factors for arrhythmias, represent major developments in the field.

In this Special Issue, we welcome original articles and comprehensive reviews for this evolving field of research. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following themes:

-       New insights into the burden of arrhythmias, especially in low and middle-income countries

-       Disparities in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with arrhythmias

-       Health behaviors and environmental factors as risk factors for arrhythmias

-       Quality-of-care measures and economic costs associated with novel interventions and devices

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Assoc. Prof. Christopher Wong
