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.
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.
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.
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.
