Volume 1 – Number 2 – September 2015

The second issue highlights STEMI care in low-to-middle income countries,  debates biodegradable vs durable polymers and asks if the DAPT trial will change practice in the Asia-Pacific region.  Also the role of remote ischaemic preconditioning on myocardial injury in stable patients is reported. And finally how would you treat a common femoral arterial haemorrhage and deep vein thrombosis post percutaneous coronary intervention for non-STelevation myocardial infarction?
