In this issue, we bring you a debate on whether patients with chronic heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, also known as ischaemic cardiomyopathy, should be revascularised, offering PCI for HFrEF patients. In coronary interventions: an article on physiological assessments for predicting haemodynamic outcomes; the relationship between vessel location and instantaneous wave-free ratio; a translational research paper on laser intravascular lithotripsy; a research correspondence on the use of drug-coated balloon angioplasty in patients with de novo long lesions on large coronary arteries. In interventions for valvular disease and heart failure: the epidemiology and prognostic significance of different phenotypes of extra-mitral valve cardiac involvement in primary mitral regurgitation patients referred for transcatheter edge-to-edge repair; THV deformation in mitral valve-in-valve procedures; the first-in-human experiences with the CAPTIS cerebral embolic protection device in TAVI. In peripheral interventions: a look at in-hospital and post-discharge outcomes of PAD patients undergoing PVI with or without atherectomy; and more.
