Several afib.no network members participated in the AF Club meeting at Trolleholm castle outside Lund, Sweden on April 5-6. Medical doctors, engineers as well as veterinarians, with atrial fibrillation research as a common interest were present. Similar meetings have been arranged every second year, and have inspired several collaborative projects across the participating research groups.
This year’s scientific program had a wide thematic span, including genetics and population-based studies, atrial fibrillation in specific conditions such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, long QT-syndrome and CRT treatment. Exercise testing of trotter horses with atrial fibrillation and exercise as a trigger for atrial fibrillation in horses and humans were discussed. One session was also dedicated to ECG-signal processing in different aspects of atrial fibrillation, in humans as well as horses.
