Volume 17 Number 1

This issue includes the EAPCI Core Curriculum; a mini focus on deep learning in interventional cardiology with three studies that look at artificial intelligence in the interpretation of coronary angiography, optical coherence tomography and fractional flow reserve. From the European Bifurcation Club, a consensus document on antithrombotic drugs in patients undergoing bifurcation PCI; a randomised trial on the management of non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in very elderly patients; a study on the prognostic value of the CABG SYNTAX score. In the structural heart disease section, a study of deformations of the right coronary artery after interventional treatment of tricuspid regurgitation using the Cardioband system; the novel LAmbre device for use in large left atrial appendage occlusions; paediatric probes for adults in the guidance of left atrial appendage closure, and more...
