Heart is an international peer reviewed journal that keeps cardiologists up to date with advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. A special emphasis is given to valve disease, congenital heart disease, and inherited cardiovascular conditions as well as coronary disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, imaging, epidemiology, global health, genomics and translational science. Each issue contains original research, accompanying editorials, and reviews; an extensive continuing professional education section (Education in Heart), the Image Challenge series of image-based cases with MCQs; and Journal Scan summarizing important papers published in other journals.
