The study of cardiovascular illness in the elderly has become increasingly important, as both the mean age of the population and life expectancy increase. The journal Cardiology in the Elderly addresses both preclinical and clinical cardiac issues in this patient group.
The journal is broken down into several sections. "Clinical Investigation" includes clinical trials and observational studies of disease processes and treatment patterns in the elderly population. "Features" encompasses editorials, editorial reviews, and case reports. "Review in Depth" is a collection of reviews on different aspects of a specific topic (for instance, a review in depth on invasive cardiology included review articles on thrombolytic therapy, coronary angioplasty, surgical myocardial revascularization, and balloon valvuloplasty). Each review has an annotated bibliography. "Bibliography of the Current World Literature" is an overwhelming list of hundreds of journal articles. Many of these, though relevant, are not specifically dedicated to cardiac disease in the elderly.
