Submit a research proposal

Anyone who wants to do a multicentric analysis can submit a research proposal to the Scientific Committee. Please follow the procedure below:

  1. The proposal must contain 1 or 2 pages with the objective of the study, the material and methods, and the expected results.

  2. Submit the proposal to one month before the annual meeting of the HVS (April 2021) or the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) (October 2021).

  3. The proposal will be reviewed by the scientific committee. Any submitted proposals will be discussed in detail during the HVS Aortic Valve Database meeting at the Annual Meeting of HVS, EACTS and AATS (or aortic symposium)

  4. For validated proposals, the team will be given a deadline of 6 months after data extraction to perform the analysis and write a draft publication that should be presented at the next meeting. When the deadline is exceeded, the topic can be passed on to another group.
