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

July 2021

Volume 17 Number 4

This issue of EuroIntervention includes an EAPCI/ACVC joint publication and consensus document on the present and future state of percutaneous ventricular assist devices; a mini focus on coronary physiology with articles on the prognostic ability of quantitative flow ratio-based residual functional SYNTAX scores; diagnostic use of fractional flow reserve derived from coronary angiography, coronary flow capacity for guiding PCIs and evaluating normal values of absolute coronary blood flow and microvascular resistance. In coronary interventions, troubleshooting double kissing crush bifurcation stenting; when do tangential signal drop artefacts mimic lipid-rich plaque in optical frequency domain imaging and the TARGET trial comparing the Firehawk to the XIENCE stent. In interventions for valvular disease and heart failure, a look at the COAPT trial and the relative roles of the MitraClip and guideline-directed medical therapy in patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction; patient selection in transcatheter tricuspid valve interventions to reduce tricuspid regurgitation, and more...
