Volume 20 Number 1

This issue includes a state-of-the-art review on inflammation in atherosclerosis – the underlying mechanism of inflammation, the biomarkers and what our therapeutic options are today. In coronary interventions: a minifocus on robotics in coronary revascularisation including articles on robotic-assisted coronary artery bypass grafting and robotic PCI versus manual PCI. In interventions for valvular disease and heart failure: an article on ultrasound-guided transfemoral access; the ROTA-CUT trial investigating whether stent expansion is better optimised by combining rotational atherectomy with cutting balloon angioplasty or with non-compliant balloon angioplasty; the 1-year results of the ACURATE neo2 PMCF study; Evolut PRO vs SAPIEN 3 in the OPERA-TAVI registry. A research correspondence on the use of QFR to predict post-PCI coronary events; a debate on the role of observational studies in the era of randomised controlled trials; and more...
