Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death around the world. According to the European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics 2017, CVD caused 3.9 million deaths in Europe each year, which are more than half of all deaths across the European Region. This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art of Cardiovascular Medicine in Europe. We invite research papers that will consolidate our understanding in this area.

In this Special Issue, we will focus and will be interested in , but are not limited to, receiving manuscript contributions in one or more of the following areas:

Management of Heart Failure 
Diseases of the aorta
Myocardial disease
Cardiovascular imaging (cardiac CT; cardiac MRI)
Interventional cardiology
Peripheral vascular interventions
Heart transplantation
Valvular heart disease
Cardiovascular Prevention
Arterial Hypertension
Arrhythmias (Sudden cardiac death)

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit manuscripts on the subject “State-of-the-Art Cardiovascular Medicine in Europe 2022” for this Special Issue. Full papers and communications, as well as comprehensive reviews, are welcome. Please feel free to contact me, the guest editor, in case of further questions.
