Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increasing pace of advances in cardiothoracic surgery in recent decades has fundamentally altered the natural course of treatment of patients with heart and lung disease. The advancements have focused on reducing the need for invasive surgery, reducing pain and hospital stay, and improving outcomes for a faster recovery and return to regular life. In recent years, available therapies have been revolutionized completely by new robotic, thoracoscopic and transcatheter therapeutic approaches, novel ventricular assist devices, and new drugs. Furthermore, molecular biology and genetics have had a rapidly growing impact on cardiothoracic diseases, allowing the field of regenerative medicine and thoracic oncology to grow closer to routine clinical implementation.

This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine is dedicated to advances in the management of heart failure, valvular disorders, myocardial ischemia, and arrhythmias. The issue also focuses on advances in the management of thoracic disease, including lung and esophageal disease, as well as molecular and genetic advancements in the treatment of thoracic oncology. The articles may focus on clinically available solutions, new therapies currently under evaluation in clinical trials, promising preclinical technologies, and emerging concepts and innovations not yet been in clinical scenarios. Additionally, discussions on future challenges and opportunities for clinical implementation are welcome. This issue aims to provide information to physicians who want to stay up to date with current therapies and those interested in the future of cardiothoracic disease, biomedical companies seeking innovation opportunities, and those wishing to broaden their knowledge of new cardiothoracic therapeutic options.
