Cardiothoracic and abdominal disorders constitute a large proportion of animal diseases and are the leading causes of considerable deaths in the field of veterinary medicine. There are continuous research trials to find out simple diagnostic methods to effectively and easily monitor internal organ functions with time-saving procedures, high accuracy, and minimum invasiveness. Moreover, recent treatment strategies including new therapeutic agents and/or surgical techniques as well as diagnostic biomarkers are currently highly developed. Recent research studies are focusing on new diagnostic imaging techniques such as novel ultrasonographic approaches, echocardiography-derived techniques, blood flow dynamics, smartphone-based diagnostic applications, etc., in addition to new surgical procedures and laboratory biomarkers. These trendy methods showed enormous potential to improve the outcome of cardiothoracic and abdominal disorders in animal models and clinical practice. In certain cases, cardiac or vascular abnormalities and abdominal disorders are interdigitating and multidisciplinary studies covering various aspects of complex diseases worth research. Research topics covering these issues will help not only early detection of organ abnormalities but also to expect the behavior of diseases and predict the outcome of the cases which are crucial to establishing new strategies for disease detection, treatment, and prevention.
The current Research Topic aims to invite worldwide researchers to cover the latest advancements in recent research across the field of advanced diagnosis and treatment of abdominal and cardiothoracic disorders in clinical veterinary practice. This can be applied during disease monitoring, treatment courses, before and after surgical correction, and animal models.
We welcome original research articles, reviews, short communications, and case reports on companion animals, large animals, and laboratory animal models are welcome. More specifically, we welcome multidisciplinary studies looking at:
-The recent ultrasound imaging technologies, echocardiography, hemodynamic assessment, and ECG.
- The association between cardiovascular events, abdominal disorders, and changes in blood flow. Novel cardioprotective agents and new surgical approaches.
- Bio-fluid composition to improve biomarkers in diseases diagnosis.
- The relationship between fundamental biomarkers and recent imaging indices to create novel diagnostic landmarks.
