I am delighted to take on the editorship of Interventional Cardiology Review. I hope that it will be viewed as a publication that is of real value to the coronary and structural interventional cardiology community.

Interventional Cardiology Review will continue to publish articles that contain concise summaries of research data, providing clinical and practical information, written by experienced interventional cardiologists. In addition, there will be a shift in the emphasis of the journal. Firstly, despite an expanding array of different technologies for every intervention, direct comparisons between them are few and far between. I will be asking authors to provide objective data and opinions on the important differences between technologies. Secondly, health economics is increasingly important in deciding which interventions should be undertaken and I will be asking authors to provide relevanthealth economic data where possible.

In this issue, there are articles on TAVI in moderate risk patients, the treatment of paravalvular leaks and a review of transcatheter mitral valve devices as well as discussions relating to TAVI guidelines and geographical differences inTAVI uptake. The coronary section comprises reviews of absorbable and self-expanding stents as well as a discussion of ESC STEMI guidelines.

I hope you will find this issue an informative and enjoyable read.
