Abstract

With the economic development of China, research in atrial fibrillation has improved progressively, but due to a lack of international communication, many significant achievements have not been widely recognised. A brief overview of epidemiology, current therapy and research on atrial fibrillation in mainland China is provided. Chinese electrophysiologists would like to contribute more to international research in cardiac electrophysiology.
