Theory of arrhythmia based on mechano-electric feedback between cardiac myocytes and cardiac fibroblasts
* Corresponding author
When analyzing the articles submitted to our current issue, we involved into the preparation processing some relevant papers deserving special attention. The papers reveal the mechano-electric mechanism of the feedback between cardiac myocytes and cardiac fibroblasts that is capable of directly initiating cardiac arrhythmia. In the meantime, unfortunately, direct communication with Russian researchers Kamkin A.G., Kiseleva I.S. and Yarygin V.N. was not possible, but nevertheless, we are of the opinion that it is reasonable to review their articles, which discuss this interesting and logically justified mechanism of arrhythmia.
