Aims and scope

BMC Cardiovascular Disorders is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the characterization, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart and circulatory system. The journal welcomes clinical, basic and translational science studies that provide insights into the pathophysiology, molecular and cell biology, genetics, pharmacology, or epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases. Articles on surgical advancements and new technologies aiding in the diagnosis, monitoring and computational modelling of cardiovascular disorders are also considered.
