Commentary on late breaking trials in interventional cardiology at ESC, VIVA, TCT, AHA (Fall 2012), and ACC 2013

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2014 May 1;83(6):936-43. doi: 10.1002/ccd.25301.


With the plethora of clinical trials, it is difficult for busy interventional cardiologists to stay up to date. Therefore, the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) publications committee concisely summarized and provided editorial commentary on the most important trials from recent, large international meetings. The intent is to provide this summary every six months to allow quick assimilation of trial results into interventional practice.

Keywords: antithrombotics; myocardial infarction; peripheral arterial disease; review; stents; valvular heart disease.
