Volume 17 Number 6

In this month’s edition we have a EuroIntervention State-of-the-Art on the management of cardiogenic shock outlining the latest treatments and emerging data. In coronary interventions: the COOL AMI EU trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of rapid systemic intravascular hypothermia as an adjunctive therapy to primary percutaneous interventions in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction; the RE-DUAL PCI trial, where the safety and efficacy of dabigatran dual therapy plus a P2Y12 inhibitor was evaluated against warfarin triple therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for ST-elevation myocardial infarction; the ISAR-CALC trial, on the efficacy and safety of balloon-based techniques in preparing severely calcified coronary lesions for stenting; the impact of neoatherosclerosis on prognosis after percutaneous coronary interventions for in-stent restenosis; the four-year outcomes of the EROSION study which followed the effectiveness of an antithrombotic therapy without stenting in treating acute coronary syndromes caused by erosion; a mini focus on spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) including the relationship between SCAD and fibromuscular dysplasia and genetic links to SCAD; the clinical impact of SCAD angiographic classifications, and more...
