Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Prof. Attilio Maseri, a brilliant clinician scientist and contributor to innovate profoundly our understanding of ischemic heart disease, passed away on 3rd September 2021. During his long career, beginning from the late 1960, he made significant contributions to a diverse range of areas, including coronary vasomotion disturbances and vascular inflammation. His profound influence spanned from theoretical to clinic and practical cardio-thoracic and vascular research.

As Prof. Paolo Camici and Prof. Domenico Cianflone said, he always pursued research and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms by his personal approach: searching for reasons that could explain the “differences from the average”. He was able to transmit his “method” and as a mentor he has trained a large number of successful cardiologists and scientists both in Italy and the United Kingdom.

Now, we feel obliged and honored to collect a series of papers by his students, friends, and colleagues together in this Special Issue dedicated to Prof. Attilio Maseri. In this Special Issue, we will be interested in articles on pathophysiological mechanisms and translational research, not only considering heart care and vascular mechanisms, and clinical research—which build upon Prof. Maseri’s achievements—but also other issues improving the cardiovascular medicine, addressing a broad scope and thereby paying tribute to the rich scientific curiosity of Prof. Maseri.

Prof. Dr. Giuseppe Biondi-Zoccai, Dr. Mariangela Peruzzi and Prof. Antonio Abbate
