A State of the Art on imaging, specifically looking at echocardiographic guidance for transcatheter-based treatment of structural heart disease. An article on TAVI vs SAVR for bicuspid aortic valve stenosis. A mini focus on coronary physiology including articles on outcomes of quantitative flow ratio-based percutaneous coronary interventions; reasons for the lack of reproducibility in quantitative flow ratio measurement; coronary artery flow dominance in clinical physiological assessments and a review of current knowledge in coronary vasomotor function testing along with what is missing for its widespread use and more...
