About the Journal
The journal of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Cirurgia Cárdio-Torácica e Vascular was founded in 1991 and represents an official body of the now renamed Sociedade Portuguesa de Cirurgia Cardíaca Torácica e Vascular (SPCCTV). The main objective of the SPCCTV’s Journal is to publish high quality papers in the areas of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery.
The second objective of the SPCCTV’s Journal is to facilitate and stimulate discussion and information sharing, as much as ethical, economic and social questions related to Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, constituting a forum for divulging progress in all areas related to the three specialties.
The SPCCTV’s journal is published every three months in an electronic version, with the published articles available online. All the papers of the SPCCTV’s Journal are published as Open Access, with no associated processing fees, thanks to the support of the Sociedade Portuguesa de Cirurgia Cardíaca Torácica e Vascular.
The rigor and accuracy of the results published in the SPCCTV’s journal, as much as the opinions expressed, are an exclusive responsibility of the authors.
The Portuguese Journal of Cardiac Thoracic and Vascular Surgery is the continuation of Revista portuguesa de cirurgia cardio-toracica e vascular (ISSN - 0873-7215) from January 2021.
