Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interventional cardiology is a rapidly evolving field that focuses on the use of minimally invasive techniques to diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this Special Issue is to present cutting-edge research in interventional cardiology, including studies on new devices and techniques, clinical trials evaluating the effectiveness of different interventions, and research on improving patient outcomes and safety. The scope of the Special Issue encompasses a wide range of topics in interventional cardiology, such as new stent technologies, novel imaging techniques, coronary physiology assessment, advancements in structural heart disease interventions, and the long-term outcomes of interventional procedures.

Primarily, this Issue will publish original research articles that contribute to the advancement of interventional cardiology, providing new findings and insights. However, it will also include a limited number of reviews. Overall, this Special Issue aims to enhance the understanding and progress of interventional cardiology by providing updates and addressing current challenges.

Dr. Michail I. Papafaklis

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
