Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Arrhythmias may occur as complications in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. It includes tachyarrhythmia, which may be asymptomatic or symptomatic. At least around 75% of myocardial infarction patients develop arrhythmia during the peri-infarction period. Pathophysiology pathways differ in each type of arrhythmias. . It also contributes to different treatment modalities. Arrhythmogenesis in ACS patients includes various factors: electrophysiological changes, metabolic changes, increased sympathetic activity, vagal stimulation, reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and scar formation. Myocardial reperfusion also may result in complex electrophysiological changes, depending on previous ischemia duration. Ventricular arrhythmia is more common with increased ischemia duration. At present, the anti-arrhythmic prophylactic management strategy has mostly been abandoned. Although the primary therapy for arrhythmias is anti-arrhythmic drugs (AADs), especially amiodarone and sodium channel inhibitors, their utilization now has declined, since the emergence of clinical evidence with inconclusive results in the use of these AADs. Besides, therapies for ACS and their arrhythmic management are increasingly based on invasive approaches. Some tachyarrhythmias are malignant and may increase death risk, which requires immediate treatment, while some are benign and do not alter the outcome of patients. Understanding the mechanism and adequate treatment of these tachyarrhythmias is essential in reducing mortality in ACS patients during the acute phase and follow-up.
