Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
With the new developments in medicine and the modern approach to a new lifestyle, longevity has increased in the general population. Even the perception of an "old person" has changed, as more and more people over 75 years are active and care for themselves.
As people get older new changes occur in the cardiovascular system, starting from the microvascular level and progressing into a clinical pathology with several symptoms. Patients over 65 years pose new challenges for the treating physician and need specific management since they can present associated non-cardiovascular diseases which can favor the development of new or worsen pre-existing cardiac pathologies. This can alter the quality of life of an individual.
Older patients are more likely to benefit from mini-invasive new cardiovascular procedures or imaging techniques since they are more fragile and sometimes more difficult to manage during a prolonged investigation or cardiac intervention.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect original research papers, reviews, and commentaries focused on new approaches to older patients with heart disease and new treatment options for the elderly.
