Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) is an Open Access peer reviewed scientific journal for exchange of knowledge and data in the rapidly growing research field emerging in the wake of still better mechanical circulatory support apparatuses and their capability to keep patients alive longer and longer. MCS focuses on all aspects of both short-term and long-term mechanical circulatory support, spanning both pediatric and adult topics.
