This issue of AsiaIntervention begins with an overview of the evolution of interventional cardiology in India and continues with articles touching on such topics as the difference in sizing of the aortavalvular complex by Japanese and French teams, a study evaluating the spatial distribution and magnitude of coronary calcification and stent expansion and two “How should I treats”, from Thailand and Singapore with invited experts from Europe.
