ICR - Volume 11 Issue 2 Winter 2016

Editor-in-Chief Dr Simon Kennon, and the Editorial Board, present the Winter 2016 edition of Interventional Cardiology Review.

This issue comprises a range of reviews and expert opinion articles focused on current questions in interventional cardiology. Highlights include discussions of percutaneous coronary intervention in older people, preventing contrast-induced renal failure and the use of drug-coated balloon-only angioplasty instead of stents for the management of native coronary disease.

The Editorial Team and Publisher hope you find this issue of Interventional Cardiology Review valuable.

Finally, accompanying this issue is a promotional supplement focused on the emerging technologies of catheter based FFR and HD-IVUS based upon presentations given by an expert panel at EuroPCR 2016. We are grateful to ACIST Medical Systems for funding this report.
