We are excited to serve as the Guest Editors for a Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine, dedicated to advances in interventional cardiology and vascular medicine” to be published in January-February 2018. This Special Issue, titled “Advances in Interventional Cardiology and Vascular Medicine” will focus on current advances in coronary and peripheral vascular disease and intervention.
There has been significant progress in the field of interventional cardiology from newer devices to newer applications of technology, resulting in improved cardiovascular outcomes. The goal of this Special Issue would be to update the practicing clinician and provide a comprehensive collection of review articles and editorials.
To this end, we would like to invite state-of-the-art reviews, including reviews of new technology and therapeutics, as well as original research in this area will be considered for inclusion in this issue. Examples include history and evolution of interventional techniques, reviews of specific devices (i.e., stent technology, atherectomy devices, and robotics), medical therapy (i.e., anti-platelet therapy in coronary or peripheral intervention), specific clinical problems (i.e., risk/benefit in revascularization in stable CAD or stable claudication), advances in the management of challenging coronary anatomy and interventional techniques in the management of heart failure, venous insufficiency, peripheral arterial diseases and pulmonary embolism.
We highly encourage submission of manuscripts that would integrate vascular biology and medicine especially as it relates to imaging plaque vulnerability and future directions in vascular imaging.
The deadline for submission of these articles to the journal is 1 December, 2017. We look forward to your submissions!Dr. Aseem Vashist
