These are exciting times to be involved in cardiac electrophysiology! The field has surged due to tremendous advances in device therapy and catheter ablation of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. With the increasing new knowledge comes the responsibility of every physician to digest the most important facts to offer best practice medicine to their patients. The European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology, a new, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, aims to support the busy physician by publishing, on a bi-annual basis, carefully selected original research articles, case reports and expert review articles, all chosen based on topics that matter most to physicians caring for patients with rhythm disorders. Information will be provided in a succinct and clinically useful format with the aim to aid physicians in the day-to-day clinical setting.

This inaugural issue of the European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology includes articles spanning the full breadth of cardiac rhythm disorders. We begin with an overview of the recent trials for atrial fibrillation therapy by Gorenek et al. and an introduction to the new clinical entity of OSAFED syndrome by Filipiak et al. Choudhury et al. discuss the recent updates in Brugada syndrome and Ali et al. present an interesting case report to highlight the crucial role of a carefully conducted electrophysiological study in order to fully understand the tachycardia mechanism. Barwad et al. discuss an approach to difficult left ventricular lead placement and Karpawich et al. evaluate the time, efficacy, cost and safety of limited fluoroscopic imaging plus three-dimensional imaging for supraventricular tachycardia ablation in the paediatric population

The journal welcomes submissions for future editions focusing on major topics such as inherited/genetic arrhythmias, device therapies, management of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, anticoagulation in non-valvular atrial fibrillation and sudden cardiac death.

Thank you to the authors who have contributed to the first edition. We would also like to thank our newly appointed Editorial Board for their help so far, and look forward to working with them in the future.

Introduction: The role of pre-implant and intra-procedural parameters on mortality and hospitalisation for heart failure (HHF) in patients undergoing implantation with cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P) or defibrillator (CRT-D) versus CRT upgrade is poorly defined. In the present study we aimed to evaluate mortality predictors and clinical outcomes in patients undergoing CRT-P/D versus CRT upgrade. […]
