Beijing, 31 March 2020: the journal Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications (CVIA) has just published a new issue, Volume 4 Issue 3 with an invitation to join the International Brugada Electrocardiographic Indices Registry

This issue brings together important research papers from leading cardiologists in US, China and Europe in a combination of reviews, original research and case reports.

A very important paper included in the issue invites cardiologists worldwide to contribute to the International Brugada Electrocardiographic indices Registry ( An Open Invitation to Join the International Brugada Electrocardiographic Indices

Registry (DOI 10.15212/CVIA.2019.0568). This group already has over 39 investigators in 18 countries and is looking to recruit new members to make a contribution to the evaluation of the disease life course, risk factors, and prognosis in a large series of Brugada patients and provide insights for improving risk stratification.

Other papers in the issue are as follows:
