Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the population ages, heart valve disease becomes a growing health problem worldwide. Heart valves, including the aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonary valve and tricuspid valve, control the direction of your blood flow. Heart valve disease is a common condition that one or more of the valves do not open or close properly. The causes are often linked to birth defects, age or other conditions. In the past, medication and open-heart surgery are the common treatments for heart valve diseases. However, with the advances in medical technology, a range of innovative, minimally invasive procedures are developed, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), percutaneous mitral valve repair (MitraClip) and robotic mitral valve repair.

This Special Issue aims to collate state-of-the-art research on heart valve disease. Original articles, reviews, and communications are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
