Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia is a quarterly journal that serves the educational needs of clinicians practicing cardiothoracic and vascular anesthesia, thoracic and abdominal transplant anesthesia, pediatric/congenital cardiothoracic anesthesia, and related specialties including critical care medicine. SCVA provides the anesthesia practitioner with access to timely reviews that summarize the data and expert opinion supporting evidence-based medicine and current best practices. It fulfills an important niche as one of only two journals devoted to the anesthetic and perioperative care of patients with heart, lung, vascular, and pediatric/congenital heart disease as well as patients requiring thoracic or abdominal organ transplantation. The Journal adheres to a rigorous double-anonymized reviewing policy in which the identity of both the reviewer and author are always concealed from both parties.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)

Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia is a quarterly, peer-reviewed publication devoted to the dissemination of educational material involving the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems relevant to the perioperative care of the surgical patient. As of 2017, SCVA expands its scope to transplant anesthesia and critical care, aiming to become a comprehensive academic forum for all physicians involved in thoracic and abdominal organ transplantations.

Presentations feature a multidisciplinary approach with contributions from anesthesiologists, surgeons, internists, specialists in critical care medicine, and other health care practitioners interested in perioperative medicine. Clinical education material centers around topic-based Review Articles, Original Research, Technology Communications, along with case reports and Clinical Challenges which are clinical case based didactic articles. SCVA strives to present internationally relevant subject material and innovative scientific submissions from all continents.

In addition to these efforts to engage scholarship globally, Seminars in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia is committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in our publications. We encourage submissions from a broad range of international authors with a wide variety of backgrounds. Furthermore, we have recruited a diverse group of Editorial Board members to maintain an inclusive community within the journal’s leadership.
