Happy Holidays !!

Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, Andrea Natale

Dear Colleagues

We thank you for your continued interest and patronage of the Journal of Atrial Fibrillation. We appreciate your patience in enduring some of the hiccups we had in the submission and review process. Starting January 1st, we will be upgrading our site to ensure easier submission, navigation and communication. We also had some technical glitches in the PUBMED uploading software. These issues have been addressed and you should see significant changes on these fronts.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. With the Holidays, close by we are sure the clinical activity is in high gear. December is probably going to be relatively quiet from the stand point of academic activity. We will probably see some of you at the AF, VT and VF Symposium in Chicago this weekend.

In this issue of the Journal, we have several exciting articles ranging from atrial fibrosis and left atrial appendage leak closure. As always, we strive to bring high quality educational material to you. We encourage you to consider JAFIB to publish your work. If you are interested in contributing some high value review articles we will be happy to feature them in the upcoming issues of the journal.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Best wishes
