Are you faced with a diversity of approaches and techniques?

Access the new issue of EuroIntervention! In this issue, we examine bailout MANTA for bailout access site closure after ProGlide failure during transfemoral TAVI; a vascular closure algorithm for transfemoral TAVI; the ACURATE versus the Evolut for valve-in-valve TAVI; redo-TAVI with an ACURATE neo2 in a SAPIEN 3; the biological differences in paclitaxel- and sirolimus-coated balloons and how they might affect treatment of coronary lesions; a debate on ischaemic and viability testing for guiding PCI; and so much more

Prophylactic stenting of vulnerable plaques: pros and cons
Duk-Woo Park, David L. Brown et al.
This study discusses preventive stenting of vulnerable plaques to reduce acute coronary syndromes risk but current imaging has limitations and stenting risks harm, requiring larger trials to prove risks and benefits.

TMVI versus SMVR in intermediate-risk patients
Johannes A. Ziegelmueller et al.
This study compared transcatheter mitral valve implantation using the Tendyne system to surgical mitral valve replacement, finding higher rates of device success with TMVI but comparable safety outcomes.

SAPT following Amplatzer LAAO
Anders Kramer, Jens Erik Nielsen-Kudsk et al.
This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of single antiplatelet therapy as the sole post-procedural antithrombotic regimen following left atrial appendage occlusion in 431 high bleeding risk patients, finding low rates of adverse events comparable to more intensive regimens.

CMD in aortic stenosis
Roberto Scarsini, Flavio Ribichini et al.
This study found an association between low microvascular resistance reserve (MRR), a measure of coronary microvascular dysfunction, and extracardiac damage and low-flow aortic stenosis in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). MRR improved after TAVI but remained impaired in some.

Acute changes in microvascular resistance after treating aortic stenosis
Nils P. Johnson, Rob Eerdekens

This editorial discusses how aortic stenosis increases myocardial resistance through two mechanisms: increasing the zero-flow pressure which shifts the resistance line right, and increasing the slope which flattens the line.

Evolving indications for edge-to-edge repair
Mony Shuvy, Francesco Maisano

This expert review examines the use of transcatheter mitral edge-to-edge repair (TEER) in patient populations beyond current indications, discussing the outcomes and limitations seen in these diverse patient groups.

Outcomes of TEER for AFMR
Tetsu Tanaka, Marcel Weber et al.
This retrospective study analyzed 441 patients with functional mitral regurgitation who underwent transcatheter edge-to-edge repair. It found an association between optimal mitral regurgitation reduction, mean mitral valve pressure gradient, and clinical outcomes in patients with atrial functional mitral regurgitation.

Ostial RCA lesions: outcomes after DES implantation
Kei Yamamoto, Akiko Maehara et al.

There were three distinct IVUS ostial RCA lesion morphologies: isolated ostial RCA disease, CN, and diffuse distal disease. Because the morphology may impact outcomes after DES implantation, it makes sense to evaluate ostial RCA lesion morphology with IVUS after disengagement of the guiding catheter.
