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

PCR e-Course Abstracts Book

This supplement comprises a selection of the community’s 2020 abstracts accepted for oral or moderated e-Poster presentation, the PCR’s Got Talent competition and as posters.

Sincere thanks to the thousands of peers who have submitted their best work to PCR since the beginning of this year. The number of contributions to the various Calls for Submissions never fails to remind us how important it is to enable the interventional cardiovascular community to share their work with their peers around the world.

As always, the submitted abstracts mainly addressed coronary interventions (69%), followed by interventions for valvular disease (21%). The remainder of the submissions is made up of peripheral interventions, heart failure and stroke interventions, and hypertension.

Concerning the geographical origins of the submissions, the top five countries all have an established track record in the matter. Top of the list comes Japan, then Italy, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom. Close behind we find India, the Netherlands and the Republic of Korea.

With over 1,000 abstract submissions came once again the need for a large number of graders. Our warm thanks go out to the 200+ colleagues who kindly agreed to use their valuable time to review and assess the abstracts through a blinded online grading process.
