EUropean REnal and CArdiovascular Medicine (EURECA-m) Working Group

Survey on the management of atrial fibrillation in patients with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease
The European Renal and Cardiovascular medicine (EURECA-m) working group of the European Renal Association/European Dialysis and Transplantation Association together with the Scientific Initiatives Committee of the European Heart Rhythm Association warmly invite you to complete the following survey.
The purpose of this survey is to assess the common “real world” practice in the management of patients with both atrial fibrillation (excluding those with prosthetic mechanical heart valves or mitral stenosis) and chronic kidney disease in European Renal and Cardiology Units.
Completion of the survey requires less than 10 minutes of your time. The results of the survey will be used to inform future research initiatives to be conducted across Europe to tackle the difficult issue that is the management of atrial fibrillation in patients with chronic kidney disease.

EURECA-m is an official working group of ERA-EDTA

The ERA-EDTA has a large basis of clinicians and investigators interested in the relationship between the kidney and the cardiovascular system.
The large interest on this theme-area among the ERA EDTA membership was the basis for a group of clinical investigators with an interest in the field (Gerard London, Adrian Covic, Danilo Fliser, David Goldsmith, Bengt Lindholm, Alberto Martinez, Gultekin Suleymanlar, Ziad Massy, Alberto Ortiz Arduan, Andrzej Wiecek and Carmine Zoccali) proposing to the ERA-EDTA council the creation of a EUropean REnal and CArdiovascular Medicine (EURECA-m) working group. The council approved this WG and ratified the proposal by the original nucleus to name Carmine Zoccali as the first WG chairman. Carmine Zoccali was then replaced as Chairman by Gérard Michel London in February 2012. Since January 2018 Prof. Francesca Mallamaci took over the Chairmanship of EURECA-m.
