Hence, a Cardiologist dealing with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system is very essential. Cardiologists work to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases of the cardiovascular system, providing a variety of invasive and non-invasive treatments, performing surgical procedures including diagnosis and examination of patients for ailments. Cardiologists also play a role in rehabilitating those who have recently undergone heart trauma or a major heart surgery. Cardiology specialties include nuclear cardiology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and echocardiography.
Cardiologists are the one who helps the patients to live longer and better. Advanced research in the field of cardiology helps to improve the diagnosing methodologies, investigation techniques and managing patients with cardiovascular diseases effectively.
Subject areas include, but are not limited to the following fields:
Acute Coronary Syndromes, Anticoagulation, Arrhythmias, Atherectomy, Atherosclerosis, Atherothrombosis, Atrial Fibrillation, Biomarkers, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiomyopathy, Cardiovascular Risk, Clinical Research, Congenital Heart Disease, Coronary Artery Disease, Coronary Pathophysiology, Diagnostic Testing, Echocardiography, Endovascular Imaging, Heart Failure, Heart Rhythm Disorders, Hypertension, Images in Intervention, Lipidology, Myocardial Infarction, Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), Structural Heart Disease Interventions, Stroke, Valvular Heart Disease, Vascular Medicine.
CPQ Cardiology aims at publishing articles in all relevant aspects.

Congenital heart defects are the most frequent malformation. The prevalence varies among the different geographical regions of the world, due in part to the birth rate, population density and local record-keeping. With increased survival, the congenital heart population has undergone a great change, increasing the prevalence of adults with congenital heart disease. [...] READ MORE
