About the Collection

BMC Cardiovascular Disorders is calling for submissions to our Collection on Perioperative management in cardiac surgery. Perioperative management plays a pivotal role in ensuring the safety, efficacy, and overall success of surgical procedures. This comprehensive approach encompasses the pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative phases, emphasizing meticulous planning, seamless coordination between healthcare providers, and continuous monitoring. 

This Collection aims to explore areas like minimally invasive surgical techniques, advancements in anesthesia protocols, personalized treatment plans, and the integration of cutting-edge technologies that have further revolutionized perioperative care. These developments have significantly contributed to improved patient outcomes, reduced recovery times, and enhanced overall surgical experiences.

By carefully tailoring anesthesia, fluid administration, and hemodynamic support, clinicians can balance ensuring adequate tissue perfusion and mitigating the risks associated with surgical stress. Additionally, vigilant perioperative monitoring enables timely identification and intervention in the event of unforeseen complications, such as arrhythmias or fluctuations in blood pressure. Specialized approaches like enhanced recovery protocols not only expedite recuperation but also enhance overall patient satisfaction.

In support of SDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing, this Collection seeks contributions that address a spectrum of topics, including but not limited to:

• Fluid responsiveness
• Hemodynamic monitoring techniques
• Cardiogenic shock management
• Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)
• Acute kidney injury in cardiac surgery
• Advances in heart transplantation
• Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)
• Enhanced recovery after cardiac surgery
