Welcome to the first issue of 2018. The team at AER looks forward to building great things on last year’s successes. The journal introduces a new service for readers that will be developed through the year and published as 2018 draws to a close. This initiative will be focused on the hot topics and conversations in electrophysiology.
This issue of AER includes articles on systematic screening for AF in the community, preventing complications caused by cryoballoon ablation of AF, and a discussion of non-invasive cardiac radiation for ablation of ventricular tachycardia, among others.
The coming year will see AER work with existing collaborators and contributors to publish more high-quality clinical reviews, editorials and opinion pieces to disseminate current thinking to electrophysiologists everywhere. The journal also welcomes ideas, articles and communications from its readers: it is through this that a stronger journal develops, better serving the electrophysiology community.
