In this issue of EuroIntervention, we present clinical research on transcatheter mitral valve implantation versus surgical mitral valve replacement in intermediate-risk patients; single antiplatelet therapy following Amplatzer left atrial appendage occlusion; Murray law-based quantitative flow ratio (μQFR) for functional haemodynamic assessment of symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis leading to an effective nomogram for risk stratification; original research on coronary microvascular dysfunction in aortic stenosis patients; a debate on prophylactic stenting of vulnerable plaques; the design of the ODIN trial; research correspondence on the interaction between percutaneous mitral paravalvular leak closure and recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding; and more...
