Cor et Vasa, the journal of the Czech Society of Cardiology and Czech Society for Cardiovascular Surgery, publishes 6 times a year and covers all aspects of cardiology, angiology, cardiovascular surgery, cardiovascular imaging, pediatric cardiology, hypertension, cardiovascular prevention, critical care and intensive care medicine, pulmonary and respiratory medicine and some aspects of interventional radiology. It features editorials, review articles and original research as well as preliminary, fast-track and special communications (clinical and experimental).
In 2012, Cor et Vasa began to publish short (5000 words) summaries from the European Society of Cardiology guidelines, with each being prepared by leading Czech experts in the field.
The regular Cor et Vasa supplement "Kardio" publishes book reviews, abstracts and reports from selected congresses , polls, discussions, polemics, comments, as well as information from the Czech Society of Cardiology, Czech Society for Cardiovascular Surgery and the European Society of Cardiology. It also includes a variety of topical international news items.
The journal publishes in two versions with the same content: one of which being the on-line version of Cor et Vasa which is published completely in English, whilst the other printed version is largely in Czech (the manuscripts from the English version are translated into Czech by local experts).
Journal is now indexed and abstracted in Emerging Sources Citation Index by Thomson Reuters.
