JAFIB-EP is always on the lookout for interesting and unique cases. It’s a great way for new authors to be published as well! If you have such a case or are interested to learn more reach out to the Imaging in EP Editor, Dr. Manour Razminia or contact our Digital Editor. Here are the requirements
Biography: Dr. Razminia has been working in the field of electrophysiology since 2003. He is currently the director of cardiac electrophysiology at Amita St. Joseph Medical Center in Elgin, Illinois. He performed his first completely fluoroless catheter ablation in July of 2010. He honed the fluoroless technique over time and he has performed over 3000 consecutive fluoroless catheter ablation since December 2010.
Dr. Razminia is the co-editor of two books named “Fluoroscopy Reduction Techniques for Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmia” published in May 2019 and “Intracardiac Echocardiography, A Handbook for Electrophysiologists” published in December 2021.

Biography: Dr. Daniel Alyesh is a cardiac electrophysiologist with South Denver Cardiology who focuses on complex ablation. His areas of interest are ventricular arrhythmias, fluoroless ablation, and intracardiac echocardiography.
Dr. Alyesh studied chemistry at the University of California, San Diego and graduated with the highest distinction. He attended medical school at Georgetown University, during which time he was a Hammerman and J.T. Tai Scholar. He then completed his residency in internal medicine at Georgetown University Hospital, where he served as Chief Resident and received the Allen Goody and J.I. Cherner awards for peer mentorship, scholarship, and clinical research. He underwent specialty training in both cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at the University of Michigan and served as a Chief Fellow. Previously, he has been assistant professor at George Washington School of Medicine, and Instructor at the University of Michigan Medical School.
Throughout his career, he has authored numerous peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts and book chapters, with his work appearing in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the European Heart Journal, Circulation: Quality and Outcomes, and the American Journal of Medicine, Heart Rhythm Journal, Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology amongst many others.
Dr. Alyesh has served in leadership positions for the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Heart Rhythm Society (HRS). He was a guest editor for the ACC’s Cardiosmart atrial fibrillation section. He is a correspondent and host for programming for Heart Rhythm TV, the media outlet for the Heart Rhythm Society.
