Access Most-Cited Research from Structural Heart: The Journal of the Heart Team

Structural Heart: The Journal of the Heart Team is an international and peer-reviewed journal focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the heart valves, myocardium, and great vessels, as well as congenital heart disease. Topics covered include: transcatheter procedures; cardiovascular surgery; drug treatment; basic and translational science; imaging in structural heart disease; and innovation (new devices, therapies, First-in-Man). Original research, symposia, clinical reviews and updates, editorial commentary, and letters are regular features, with occasional publication of opinion pieces and commentary. Structural Heart also publishes consensus documents and white papers with recommendations on current topics in cardiovascular disease. It is published by Taylor & Francis and owned by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation.
