These renowned physicians will assist current Editor-in-Chief, Demosthenes Katritsis, in ensuring AER continues to publish review manuscripts of the greatest practical value for the continued education of the cardiology community on heart rhythm disorders. Professors Kuck and Auricchio will be working alongside Dr Andrew Grace, University of Cambridge, UK, who holds the position of Section Editor - Arrhythmia Mechanisms/Basic Science.

Professor Kuck is the current President of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and Head of the Second Medical Department (Cardiology) at the St Georg Hospital in Hamburg, Germany. He has built a global reputation as a scientist, cardiologist and electrophysiologist, authoring more than 450 scientific papers, many related to his specialist area of catheter ablation. He also leads cardiology at one of Europe's largest and most efficient hospital groups.

Professor Auricchio is the Director of the Clinical Electrophysiology Unit at Fondazione Cardiocentro Ticino, Lugano, Switzerland. He is also the Immediate Past-President of the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA). Professor Auricchio is a world authority on the non-pharmacological management of heart failure and use of cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) and implantable devices in arrhythmias.

On the appointments, Dr Demosthenes Katritsis, Editor-in-Chief of AER, commented: 'I am absolutely delighted to welcome Professor Kuck and Professor Auricchio to the positions of Section Editor - Clinical Electrophysiology & Ablation and Section Editor - Implantable Devices respectively. Both physicians are valued colleagues and have international reputations as experts in arrhythmology. Their guidance will be of great benefit to AER and will no doubt enhance the quality of the teaching reviews published for the education and practical use of the wider cardiology community'.

On the appointment, David Ramsey, Publishing Director at Radcliffe Cardiology, commented: 'Radcliffe Cardiology are honoured that both Professor Kuck and Professor Auricchio have accepted Section Editor roles on AER. Both physicians are global opinion leaders in heart rhythm disorders and to secure their participation as Section Editors is a real coup.
These appointments can only serve to assist AER in its mission to provide the cardiology community with free access to review papers of the highest value in order to further develop their understanding of cardiac rhythm disorders, empowering them to make better informed clinical decisions.'
