Innovations: Message From the Editor

Dear Colleague:

Innovations is proud to publish the abstract issue for the 2014 Annual Meeting of the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS). This issue contains the program and the abstracts that will be presented at the 17th Annual Meeting in Boston, MA USA, from May 28 to 31, 2014. Our journal has continued to grow and mature along with our Society. We have been accepted for MEDLINE Indexing by the National Library of Medicine. During the last year, we had a record number of manuscripts submitted and pages published. These achievements reflect the hard work of many of our members who have contributed content for publication and offered their time generously to review articles. It cannot be emphasized enough how important the enthusiastic participation of ISMICS members and meeting participants is to the success of Innovations. Last year, we had a record number of submissions from the meeting, and we hope to improve on that this year. (read more)
