New York/Stuttgart – Thieme is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. John A. Elefteriades, M.D., F.I.C.A. as Co-Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Angiology. Dr. Elefteriades is the William W.L. Glenn Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Yale University and Yale New-Haven Hospital and Director of the Center of Thoracic Aortic Disease at Yale.

Among the most clinically active academic surgeons in the US, Dr. Elefteriades is a recognized authority in interventions for the failing left ventricle, including coronary artery bypass grafting, left ventricular aneurysmectomy, and artificial heart implantation. His specific research activity involves the development of new techniques of heart transplantation and the identification of genetic variation responsible for thoracic aortic aneurysms.

Dr. Elefteriades serves on multiple scientific advisory and editorial boards and is a frequently requested international lecturer, visiting professor and guest surgeon. The author of over 200 scientific publications on a wide range of cardiac and thoracic topics, Dr. Elefteriades was selected as one of the ten best doctors in America by Men’s Health magazine. As Co-Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Elefteriades brings a wealth of experience to the editorial structure of International Journal of Angiology.

“I personally am honored to take on the role of Co-Editor-in-Chief beside the distinguished Dr. John Chang. IJA’s editorial board works together to ensure that IJA continues to improve and provide authors and readers alike with the best possible platform to exchange their knowledge and expertise. At the very core of IJA is its multidisciplinary approach which reflects the multidisciplinary nature of blood vessel disease and treatment. Regardless of our diverse specialities, research agenda, and institutional affiliation, our goal is one: the improvement of patient care related to vascular disease.”

Additional changes to the editorial organization include the appointment of Professor Kailash Prasad, Department of Physiology, University of Saskatchewan, College of Medicine as Consulting Editor and Professor Otmar M. Pachinger, Professor of Medicine, Department of Cardiology, Medical University of Innsbruck as Senior Editor. The recruitment of several active young members on the editorial board complements the new changes undergone by International Journal of Angiology.
