This article presents CVDO, an ontology of cardiovascular diseases structured on OBO foundry’s principle and based on BFO and FMA. CVDO reorganizes and completes DOID cardiovascular diseases around OGMS tripartite model of disease, and builds its taxonomy of diseases largely by automatic reasoning. It points to the need of OGMS to be supplemented by methodological rules to determine the end point of a disease course, and to locate the material basis of a disease in a causal chain of disorders. 
Causation and the River Flow Model of Diseases
TLDR
This work will be an initial step towards the development of an ontological module for generic disease representation and to offer a clear comparison between RFM and the dispositional model of disease given by the Ontology for General Medical Science (OGMS).
Formalizing a General Disease Module
TLDR
This paper aims to elaborate upon the recent view that, on closer examination of existing ontological models of disease, a disease is generally characterized as a dependent continuant of a clinically abnormal causal pattern.
A Census of Disease Ontologies
TLDR
This review examines the rise of disease and phenotype ontologies and the diverse ways they are represented and applied in biomedicine.
The Infectious Disease Ontology in the age of COVID-19
TLDR
IDO provides a simple recipe for building new pathogen-specific ontologies in a way that allows data about novel diseases to be easily compared, along multiple dimensions, with data represented by existing disease ontologies.
The Infectious Disease Ontology in 2020
TLDR
This paper presents applications of IDO Core within various areas of infectious disease research, together with an overview of all IDO extension ontologies and the methodology on the basis of which they are built, and surveys recent developments involving IDO.
Identification of Cardiovascular Diseases Risk Factors among Diabetes Patients Using Ontological Data Mining Techniques
TLDR
The findings of this study reveal that the use of ontologies minimizes the number of attributes in the preprocessing stage and helps in all data mining stages; in addition to its important role in ontological data mining, it has a higher learning accuracy ratio exceeding 90%.
What is a Risk? A Formal Representation of Risk of Stroke for People with Atrial Fibrillation
TLDR
A framework for the representation of medical risks in the context of the OBO Foundry using the Web Ontology Language (OWL) is proposed and the philosophical hypotheses on which this dispositional framework is based are clarified.
A Taxonomy of Disposition-Parthood
We propose a taxonomy of mereological relations between dispositions, as well as a series of axioms relating the bearers, triggers or realizations of disposition-complexes and disposition-parts. We
OntoPlot: A Novel Visualisation for Non-hierarchical Associations in Large Ontologies
TLDR
OntoPlot is presented, a novel visualisation specifically designed to facilitate the exploration of all concept associations whilst still showing an ontology's large hierarchical structure, which combines icicle plots, visual compression techniques and interactivity, improving space-efficiency and reducing visual structural complexity.
Using clinical reasoning ontologies to make smarter clinical decision support systems: a systematic review and data synthesis
TLDR
The literature describing clinical reasoning ontology (CRO)–based clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) is described and the medical knowledge and reasoning concepts and their properties within these ontologies are identified to guide future research.

River Flow Model of Diseases
TLDR
This article provides a definition of a disease that is more friendly to clinicians and proposes a corresponding model of diseases that can be considered as a concretization of the OGMS view of disease as disposition.
Toward an Ontological Treatment of Disease and Diagnosis
TLDR
This work defends a view of disease as involving in every case some physical basis within the organism that bears a disposition toward the execution of pathological processes and presents a list of terms and definitions designed to provide a consistent starting point for the representation of both disease and diagnosis in information systems in the future.
Disease Ontology: a backbone for disease semantic integration
TLDR
The next iteration of the DO web browser will integrate DO's extended relations and logical definition representation along with these biomedical resource cross-mappings.
Representing dispositions
TLDR
Some of the results of the philosophical debate about dispositions are discussed, in order to see whether the formal relations needed to represent dispositions can be broken down to binary relations.
Classification of the cardiomyopathies: a position statement from the European Society Of Cardiology Working Group on Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases.
TLDR
This document, The European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases presents an update of the existing classification scheme, to help clinicians look beyond generic diagnostic labels in order to reach more specific diagnoses.
OntoFox: web-based support for ontology reuse
TLDR
OntoFox provides a timely publicly available service, providing different options for users to collect terms from external ontologies, making them available for reuse by import into client OWL ontologies.
Cardiomyopathy Classification: Ongoing Debate in the Genomics Era
TLDR
How the traditional classification of cardiomyopathies based on morphology has evolved due to rapid advances in the understanding of the genetic and molecular basis for many of these clinical entities is discussed.
Contemporary Definitions and Classification of the Cardiomyopathies
TLDR
The present classification scheme recognizes the rapid evolution of molecular genetics in cardiology, as well as the introduction of several recently described diseases, and is unique in that it incorporates ion channelopathies as a primary cardiomyopathy.
SNAP and SPAN: Towards Dynamic Spatial Ontology
TLDR
It is argued that dynamic spatial ontology must combine these two distinct types of inventory of the entities and relationships in reality, and characterizations of spatiotemporal reasoning in the light of the interconnections between them are provided.
