Journal description

Interactive Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery (ICVTS) provides a new platform for the publication of short reports in the field. Basically, ICVTS is conceived as virtual conference relying on both modern media and open discussion. For this purpose, all accepted reports will be posted immediately online on this web site. An electronic, moderated discussion will be open for 28 days through a corresponding link. After closure of the discussion period, the reports pre-published on the web, as well as a selection of the contributions for the moderated discussion, will be published in the ICVTS quarterly with traditional paper format.ICVTS welcomes reports on all aspects of surgery of the heart, great vessels and the chest, including new ideas, short communications, work in progress, follow-up studies, research protocols, registry information, nomenclature, case reports, images, videos, and last but not least, reports on negative experiences.
