Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Electroanatomical mapping and ablation of ventricular arrhythmias still remains challenging. Only a minority of patients with structural heart disease have ventricular tachycardias that are reproducibly inducible and hemodynamically tolerated, allowing the detailed delineation of the re-entrant circuit. Three-dimensional electroanatomical substrate mapping and ablation during stable rhythm have been shown to be superior to a strategy targeting only mappable ventricular tachycardias. The identification of “ventricular tachycardia substrate” is a great task for the modern electrophysiologist. Ventricular tachycardia mapping and ablation has been significantly evolved the last years, and new techniques based on three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping systems have been reported.

This special issue of Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine will focus on mapping and catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with and without structural heart disease. Our main purpose is to elucidate on novel mapping and ablation techniques for catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias. In addition, the focus of this special Issue is to outline the trends for the future in catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias.

We would like to invite experts in the field of mapping and ablation of ventricular tachycardia to write comprehensive reviews for Reviews in Cardiovascular Medicine Journal. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://rcm.imrpress.org by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. 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.
