The Official Journal of EuroPCR and the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (EAPCI)

December 2021

Volume 17 Number 12

In this issue of EuroIntervention, in coronary interventions: the EuroCTO Club offers an expert review of the use of dual lumen microcatheters for treating chronic total occlusions; from the MATRIX trial, introducing the MATRIX score for predicting the risk of crossover from radial access in patients being treated invasively for acute coronary syndromes; from the ABSORB trial data, optimal dual antiplatelet therapy duration after bioresorbable scaffold implantation; validating the accuracy of a novel and fast technique for measuring of post-PCI fractional flow reserve using optical flow ratio; lipid-rich plaque identified by intravascular ultrasound in the infarct-related coronary lesions as a predictor of microvascular obstruction after primary PCI for ST-elevation myocardial infarction; early bench-testing of the Xeltis biorestorative transcatheter heart valve. In hypertension and stroke: follow-up of crossover patients with uncontrolled hypertension from the sham-controlled arm of the RADIANCE-HTN SOLO trial to treatment with ultrasound renal denervation; a registry following the safety and feasibility of percutaneous peri-device leakage closure after left atrial appendage occlusion, and more...
