As is well known, globally, heart failure represents the epidemic of the third millennium in terms of prevalence, costs, and mortality. Despite prevention, efficient screening, and early-treatment programs, heart failure is still a great problem for both physicians and healthcare systems. The Special Issue “Heart Failure: From Molecular Basis to Therapy” aims to stimulate comprehensive research for a holistic approach. This Special Issue will accept articles on the pathophysiology of heart failure and its etiologies, molecular basis, multimodality imaging, echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging, therapy including pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment as implantable defibrillators, resynchronization therapy, ventricular assistance devices, and transplantation.
This Special Issue wants to focus on both basic science and translational researches as well as clinical evidences in order to have a more complete comprehension of the pathophysiology of heart failure, considering all the aspects of this complex puzzle.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
