The Journal of Heart Valve Disease was launched in 1992 with a mission to bring together all of the disciplines which target heart valve disease in all four corners of the world, and thereby enhance the understanding and treatment of this still too common disease. Within 18 months of its launch it was listed on Index Medicus, and has been at the forefront of publishing research and the results of clinical experience in the field ever since.
The Journal of Heart Valve Disease publishes peer-reviewed scientific communications pertaining to heart valves and heart valve disease, including but not limited to all issues related to the scientific activity of The Society for Heart Valve Disease. These encompass all relevant clinical, surgical and laboratory specialties, multicenter trials, morphology, physiology, molecular biology, pathology as well as design, materials, test data and performances of replacement devices, relevant instruments and equipment. The scope of articles includes original publications, editorials, current and collective reviews, technical know-how papers both in surgery and cardiology, case reports, correspondence and book reviews.
