Basic research: Where do new endothelial cells come from in the injured heart?
Daniel M. Greif & Anne Eichmann
Published online: 03 August 2017
p507 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.121
Revascularization of ischaemia-injured myocardium is critical for functional recovery. A new study shows that endothelial cells of neovessels in the injured heart derive from pre-existing endothelial cells. This new finding focuses research on therapeutic strategies to direct the neovasculature to deliver oxygen and nutrients effectively to the ischaemic myocardium.

Demystifying rotors and their place in clinical translation of atrial fibrillation mechanisms
Stanley Nattel, Feng Xiong & Martin Aguilar
Published online: 06 April 2017
p509 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.37
Spiral-wave generators, or 'rotors', have been identified by advanced mapping methods in experimental and clinical atrial fibrillation (AF). In this Review, Nattel and colleagues describe the concepts of phase mapping and spiral-wave rotors, and summarize the ways in which rotor sources might be involved in AF maintenance. They also consider the relevance of spiral-wave rotors to the management of patients with AF.

Autoimmune channelopathies as a novel mechanism in cardiac arrhythmias
Pietro Enea Lazzerini, Pier Leopoldo Capecchi, Franco Laghi-Pasini & Mohamed Boutjdir
Published online: 04 May 2017
p521 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.61
The identification of mutations in ion channels has been crucial to understanding the pathogenesis of cardiac arrhythmias, but the aetiology of a considerable number of arrhythmogenic disorders remains unknown. In this Review, Lazzerini and colleagues discuss the role of autoimmunity in the pathogenesis of cardiac arrhythmias, describing how different autoantibodies against ion channels in the heart participate in the development of these conditions.

Pathology, imaging, and treatment of cardiac tumours
Joseph J. Maleszewski, Nandan S. Anavekar, Timothy J. Moynihan & Kyle W. Klarich
Published online: 24 April 2017
p536 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.47
Cardiac tumours include a wide array of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities. Cardiac tumours are often found incidentally during imaging by ultrasonography, CT, or MRI. In this Review, Maleszewiski and colleagues discuss the clinical presentation, imaging characteristics, pathological characteristics, and treatment of these lesions.

Physical function and exercise training in older patients with heart failure
Andrew J. Stewart Coats et al.
Published online: 18 May 2017
p550 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.70
Physical activity and exercise training are important for improving outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF), especially elderly patients, but uptake remains poor. In this Review, Stewart Coats and colleagues discuss the importance of exercise training among the older patient population with HF, and provide potential strategies to improve uptake and adherence rates.

Has the SPRINT trial introduced a new blood-pressure goal in hypertension?
Gema Ruiz-Hurtado et al.
Published online: 11 May 2017
p560 | doi:10.1038/nrcardio.2017.74
In this Perspectives article, Ruilope and colleagues discuss the relevance and caveats of the SPRINT trial, with particular focus on patient cohort characteristics, the method used to measure blood-pressure levels, and applicability of the SPRINT blood-pressure targets in real-world clinical practice and future hypertension management guidelines.
