    Special Issue on Heart Failure Research 

     

    Heart Failure, often called congestive heart failure (CHF),is an inability of the heart to provide sufficient pump action to distribute blood flow to meet the needs of the body. Common causes of heart failure include myocardial infarction and other forms of ischemic heart disease, hypertension and cardiomyopathy. The term heart failure is sometimes incorrectly used for other cardiac-related illnesses, such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) or cardiac arrest, which can cause heart failure but are not equivalent to heart failure. Heart failure is a common, costly, disabling, and potentially deadly condition. In developed countries, around 2% of adults suffer from heart failure, but in those over the age of 65, this increases to 6–10%.

     

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring heart failure. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

     

    • Signs and symptoms of heart failure
    • Biventricular failure
    • Dilated cardiomyopathy
    • Pathophysiology of heart failure
    • Systolic dysfunction
    • Diastolic dysfunction

     

    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.

     

    Please kindly notice that the Special Issueunder your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Heart Failure” should be chosen during your submission.

     

    According to the following timetable:
