Volume 5 – Number 1 – February 2019

Including a special section featuring the abstracts from India Live 2019, this issue publishes the results from the first Jordanian PCI Registry on the prognostic impact of impaired kidney function on PCI and looks at a new “nano-crush” technique for the management of coronary bifurcation lesions. Find as well the comparison between three left atrial appendage occlusion devices for stroke prevention. Have a look at an OCT imaging of a BVS in a vein graft at 40 months post-implantation and the impact of preprocedural echocardiographic parameters on increased stroke volume after TAVR.
