Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We have the pleasure to announce this Special Issue on “Advances in Substrate Characterization and Treatment of Ventricular Arrhythmias”. Ventricular arrhythmias are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, presenting with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from benign premature ventricular contractions to life-threatening conditions such as sustained ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac death.  In the last decades, technological advances in non-invasive imaging modalities and electroanatomic mapping led to a better understanding of the mechanisms and substrate of ventricular arrhythmias and to an improvement in patients risk stratification and treatment. New non-invasive mapping modalities as well as ablation techniques represent the challenges and the future direction of clinical electrophysiology.  The aim of this Special Issue is to provide the readers with a comprehensive overview on state-of-the-art methods for ventricular arrhythmias substrate characterization including electroanatomic mapping, cardiac magnetic resonance, nuclear imaging, intracardiac echocardiography, electrocardiographic mapping as well as established treatment modalities and emerging perspectives. We are therefore looking forward to receiving your review articles on this topic.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by IMR Press.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is $1950. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
