The Heart Matrix is a channel aimed at interconnecting all fields of cardiovascular medicine and surgery. We are a new platform for comprehensive scientific communication, accentuating both disease and health, beginning with the heart- an organ relentlessly at work, providing nourishment to every cell in the human body, an organ vital for life. The intent of The Heart Matrix is to bring this organ closer to those interested, entertaining the notion that the heart nourishes the mind. From the pump to the pipelines, over the uncountable number of destinations back to the pump, the heart is not independent - it is interdependent. Heart, matter, motion… hence the journal’s goal.
The main focus of The Heart Matrix is to communicate reports from relevant clinical and novel experimental findings in cardiovascular diagnosis, treatment, prevention and on-going investigations. Contributions pertinent to cardiovascular health and diseases are also included, such as the environment, public health, human genetics, basic sciences, education, sociology, and nursing. The mission of The Heart Matrix is the rapid exchange of scientific information between clinicians and researchers worldwide.
Scientific papers and reports are submitted to peer review by members of the Editorial and Advisory Board and other invited reviewers. Published are selected papers from the Annual Meetings of the Roland Hetzer International Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery e.V. (RHICS).
