BMC Cardiovascular Disorders warmly welcomes submissions to its new Collection on mechanics and fluid dynamics in cardiovascular disease
Call for papers: Mechanics and fluid dynamics in cardiovascular disease
Like

BMC Cardiovascular Disorders is calling for submissions to our Collection on Mechanics and fluid dynamics in cardiovascular disease. The study of cardiovascular mechanics and blood flow dynamics can help us understand the mechanisms underlying various cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, aneurysms, valve dysfunction and heart failure. 

This approach can address numerous challenges in cardiovascular medicine, including the detection of early-stage disease, risk stratification, the replacement of invasive techniques, and the need for patient-specific treatment planning. However, advances are needed to improve data assimilation methods, model accuracy, reduce the computational complexity of fluid dynamic simulations, and the implementation of flow-related biomarkers of disease into the clinic. 

To help address this need and support SDG 3: Good Health and Wellbeing, BMC Cardiovascular Disorders invites authors to submit articles applying mechanics and fluid dynamics principles in cardiovascular research and medicine.

Meet the Guest Editors

Francesco Capuano: Polytechnic University of Catalonia - Barcelona Tech, Spain

Dr Francesco Capuano is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fluid Mechanics at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC). He received a PhD in Engineering from the University of Naples “Federico II” in 2015. His research is focused on developing high-fidelity and robust computational techniques for modeling and analysis of multiscale, multiphysics problems in engineering and biological systems. Particular emphasis is given to scale-resolving and physics compatible simulations of turbulent flows, cardiovascular biomechanics, and biological fluid dynamics. He has long-standing collaborations with clinical cardiologists aimed at identifying novel diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of disease based on advanced blood flow analysis.

Isabella Leo: Magna Graecia University of Catanzaro, Italy

Dr Isabella Leo, MD, Cardiologist, PhD is currently a Research Associate in Cardiology at Magna Graecia University of Catanzaro, Italy. Her PhD project focused on a novel non-invasive quantification tool of intracardiac fluid dynamics. She has a special interest in multi-modality cardiovascular imaging and particularly in advanced echocardiography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance. She has been a clinical fellow in MRI for two years at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital, London and she has currently ongoing scientific collaborations with the CMR Department of the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals. 

Submission Guidelines

This Collection welcomes submission of original Research Articles. Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Mechanics and fluid dynamics in cardiovascular disease" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.

Submission Status: Open   |   Submission Deadline: 28 May 2024

Cerebrovascular Disorders

Cerebrovascular disorders comprise a range of distinct pathologies, including ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke, transient ischaemic attack, and other intracranial vascular disorders (e.g. vascular malformations and unruptured aneurysms), and significantly increase the risk of vascular dementia. Cerebrovascular disorders represent a significant medical and economic challenge which is anticipated to increase in parallel with a global ageing population. The past decade has brought great progress in diagnostic and therapeutic options but more needs to be done to improve the life of patients. Advances in basic science techniques and medical technologies hold great potential to improve the management of cerebrovascular disorders in the coming decades; however, rigorously designed translational research programs are needed to bring novel discoveries to the clinic.
