About the collection

We are pleased to announce a Collection of papers focused on right heart dysfunction in the context of the perioperative care continuum. The increasing prevalence of right ventricular dysfunction in both cardiac and non-cardiac perioperative medicine provides an opportunity to review the fundamental principles underlying its particular physiology, how best to assess right heart function, and what pharmacological and non-pharmacological (mechanical) treatment options are available. We hope this Collection provides a succinct yet comprehensive summary of the field, and provides some management guidelines for busy clinicians who must take care of patients with right heart disease.

  1. Under recognition combined with suboptimal management of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction and failure is associated with significant perioperative morbidity and mortality. The contemporary perioperative team...

  2. As patients continue to live longer from diseases that predispose them to right ventricular (RV) dysfunction or failure, many more patients will require surgery for acute or chronic health issues. Because RV d...

We welcome submissions of original Research Articles and Reviews. Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Right Heart Dysfunction in Perioperative Medicine – Physiology, Assessment and Treatment" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
