EuroPCR 2017 Highlights: Coronary Interventions

Summary

From the standpoint of 40 years of angioplasty, 20 years of physiological assessment and emerging data on a variety of topics, J. Byrne and T. Johnson review data published at EuroPCR 2017. Interest remains intense concerning bioresorbable stents (BRS) with ongoing international trials and whether evolving new devices and techniques will answer the problem of thrombosis. Complex interventions such as CTO showed interesting data and the evolution in our use of iFR or FFR continues to demonstrate the role innovation plays in our specialty, hereby better understanding physiology to improve treatment strategies and positively impacting outcome.
