Journal Scope

The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon Reports (TCS Reports) is an Open Access journal compiling case reports of great clinical relevance to thoracic and cardiovascular research, with particular emphasis on surgical implementation. TCS Reports welcomes contributions covering all aspects of the surgical and critical care of the chest, including anesthesia, cardiology, physiology and pathology.
