CIRCULATION RESEARCH: Compendium on Atrial Fibrillation

Published: June 01, 2020

Cover of the Circulation Research Compendium on Afib 2020The Editors of Circulation Research are proud to present our Compendium on Atrial Fibrillation, edited by Patrick T. Ellinor.

The Compendium on Atrial Fibrillation provides a comprehensive overview of research on this common arrhythmia. Topics discussed include risk factors and epidemiology, genetics, molecular mechanisms, new technologies for detection, population-based screening, the application of deep learning, therapeutic development, and emerging tools for catheter ablation.

Each Compendium is designed as a thematic collection of comprehensive review articles covering a specific cardiovascular disease, pathological condition, or field in its entirety, discussing the major issues, how these issues are being addressed in the laboratory and in the clinic, which important questions remain unanswered, and which pressing issues need urgent attention. We view Compendia as a one-stop shop for basic, translational, and clinical investigators who wish to gather a comprehensive assessment of a topic. Accordingly, we hope that Compendia will provide a valuable resource not only to experts and investigators in the field, but also to nontraditional readers of the journal, such as physicians, cardiology fellows, residents, and medical students.
