Greetings from Dr. Paul Schoenhagen and the CDT Editorial Office.
We are glad to present you the Annual Report of the journal. Since 2014, CDT is published as a bi-monthly journal with the increase of submissions. We also launched a special section with selective review articles published on CDT translated into Chinese, so as to reach more Chinese readers. More information is shown in the Annual Report.
We give our sincere thanks to all the editorial board members, reviewers, authors and readers. We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015! To the Chinese readers, we wish you 新春快乐，羊年吉祥！
Myocardial Edema After Ischemia/Reperfusion Is Not Stable and Follows a Bimodal Pattern: Imaging and Histological Tissue Characterization.

Contrary to the accepted view, myocardial edema during the first week after ischemia/reperfusion follows a bimodal pattern. The initial wave appears abruptly upon reperfusion and dissipates at 24 h. Conversely, the deferred wave of edema appears progressively days after ischemia/reperfusion and is maximal around day 7 after reperfusion.
While large icebergs calve regularly from fast-flowing ice shelves in West Antarctica, the coast of cooler, drier East Antarctica tends to be less active. That made it a mild surprise when a 70-square-kilometer chunk of ice broke off from the King Baudouin Ice Shelf in January 2015. The last time that part of King Baudouin calved such a large iceberg was in the 1960s.
