Special Issue "Cardiovascular and Neurological Emergency"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (5 April 2019)
Cardiovascular and neurological emergencies represent a vast public health problem, being a leading cause of death in the world (accounting for more than one third of all deaths worldwide each year). In addition, nonfatal events lead to disabilities and disability-adjusted life years, representing a major healthcare concern. The mechanisms responsible for poor outcome are not well understood, although several events (i.e., ischemia/reperfusion syndrome), have been described. Knowledge and understanding of these conditions have led to the development of animal models, successful therapies, and novel tools to characterize these clinical conditions and provide better care to patients.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine on “Cardiovascular and Neurological Emergency” aims to collect brilliant contributions from worldwide experts in the field. Thus, we invite investigators to contribute with original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand mechanisms accounting for cardiovascular and neurological emergencies and outcome, the development of new interventional strategies to improve survival with good functional recovery, new approach for evaluation and prediction of outcome, surgical and medical approaches, and different training methodologies. We are particularly interested in articles directed to promote, share and disseminate new experimental and clinical advances. Specific attention is dedicated to: Evidence from experimental and clinical trials; controversial topics; gold standard and experimental treatments and interventions.
