Cardiology as a field of study has been gaining great significance with the increasing financial burden to the nations of the globe. Cardio vascular diseases are the number one reason for deaths globally.
Interventional cardiology is a scholarly open access journal that offers an Open Access platform to the scholars, amateurs, clinical practitioners and students that are keen in contributing their findings in this field.
Since cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors Interventional cardiology journal includes wide areas of studies in this field by including apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, coronary artery ectasia, fetal heart calcification, chronic arterial insufficiency, cardiovascular disease and its association with cancer, peri-arrest period, complications after heart surgery, early repolarization symptoms, coronary arteritis, inflammatory vascular disease, inflammatory cardiomyopathy, systolic pressure variation, left atrium enlargement, and ventricular septal defect (VSD).
The journal offers thoroughly reviewed original research as research articles, review articles, case studies, commentaries, Short Communication, and Letters to the Editors in the areas not limited to association of abiotrophia species with heart problem, heart and blood vessel disorders, myocardial infarction (heart attack), issues of cardiac arrest, stroke, techniques and procedure used in stent implantation, anticoagulant drugs (blood thinners), basic research in heart structure and functions and other medical conditions and associated treatments etc.
The journal also focuses on the latest therapeutic efforts such as application of cardiac progenitor cells, angioplasty, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and other stent implantation, anticoagulant drugs (blood thinners), therapy after open heart surgery, use of ventricular assist device.
Interventional Cardiology is indexed in the quality indexing sites such as Scopus, EMBASE/Excerpta Medica to increase visibility and discoverability.
