Call for Papers: Heart Failure in the Elderly
Heart failure is a significant global epidemic for all patient populations; however, in the elderly, there may be differences in treatment effects, treatment options, epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors and outcomes.
JACC: Heart Failure is focusing on the growing body of literature with a special issue on this topic. In line with our commitment to advance scientific understanding and patient care, we will publish a uniquely themed issue to highlight this emerging theme in December of 2019.
We welcome papers addressing the broad topic of “Heart Failure in the Elderly” in the form of original research, clinical trials, meta-analysis, or position statements from societies or advocacy groups. Other formats will be considered if sufficiently rigorous and impactful.
Topics spanning this theme will be considered, including epidemiology, diagnosis and prognosis, short- and long-term outcomes, clinical management, phenotyping, emerging therapies, comorbidities, the role of biomarkers and other relevant issues.
