Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Valvular heart disease is a leading cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality worldwide, and the resultant disease burden is only projected to increase. In the last few decades, the treatment of valve pathologies has been transformed by advances in medical technology. The development of diagnostic tools and an enhanced clinical understanding of pathophysiology have allowed us to re-examine long-held ideas and think up new possible solutions in this area. A variety of novel, minimally invasive, and transcatheter methods have been developed. In this new Special Issue, we review the latest advances in diagnosis, preoperative planning, and management in the field of heart valve disease and look to future possibilities to discover better treatment solutions.

We look forward to articles and reviews presenting the latest developments in heart valve disease.
