An open-access large metanalysis on the utility and risks of antiplatelets after PCI. Of note, mortality was not a primary endpoint. The message is that long dual antiplatelet use is an exchange between avoidance of myocardial events and serious bleeding. The novel oral anticoagulants may enter the arena soon..

In the ISCHEMIA Trial, 5179 patients with moderate or severe myocardial ischemia were randomized equally into two groups based on initial management strategy: initial invasive strategy (angiography and revascularization when feasible) and medical therapy, or initial conservative strategy (medical therapy alone and angiography if medical therapy faile

Short but promising follow-up: the intervention appears again to trade off short-term peripheral vascular complications for hitherto semi-qualified MAJOR bleed in patients undergoing revascularization for peripheral vascular disease, for an assumed considerable financial cost.

Interesting to follow up the translational potential of this rodent-model of carotid i

An editorial related to a recent randomized controlled trial suggesting a striking benefit of anti-inflammatory secondary prevention after recent myocardial events.

Quite interesting to see that the incidence of revascularisation after multivessel PCA (the additional element on the second co-primary outcome) appears to have occured in more than 1% of the patients within three years...

Interesting viewpoint of a cardiologist on low-SYNTAX subjects.

An interesting small British-led randomized controlled trial on modern imaging of coronary atheroma.

An intresting pilot that was stopped due to underrecruitment. Commendable mortality in high-risk coronary artery bypass grafting.
