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

October 2021

Volume 17 Number 9

In this issue, a EuroIntervention State-of-the-Art on valve-in-valve TAVI from patient selection and preprocedural planning to complications and future perspectives; transseptal puncture is the subject of an expert report that offers a complete overview of the procedure, evolving techniques and management of complications; endovascular closure strategies for transfemoral TAVI using a combined strategy employing an adjunctive plug-based system on top of suture-based devices for haemostasis; long-term outcomes of percutaneous paravalvular leak closure; transcatheter valve repair for tricuspid regurgitation in congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. In coronary interventions: the proximal optimisation technique vs kissing balloon technique for bifurcation lesions; impact of ageing on fractional flow reserve and instantaneous wave-free ratio; detecting acute myocardial infarction early with a deep learning model and, in stroke: incidence of major bleeding events following left atrial appendage occlusion… and more.
