Manuscript Topics
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was first performed in 1977 and since then has gained rapid acceptance as a treatment option for coronary artery disease. The field has witnessed rapid technological advancements with a parallel progress in adjunct and secondary pharmacological therapy. The growth of this transformative technology has been accompanied by the birth and development of numerous multicenter registries and clinical trials.

We invite scientists and researchers to contribute full text research articles, contemporary reviews or viewpoints regarding important aspects of percutaneous coronary intervention.

• Patient delection
• Indications
• Procedural considerations
• Risk assessment
• Outcomes
• Novel techniques
• Complications and future implications

Articles focusing on cost effectiveness of percutaneous coronary interventions or comparative effectiveness with bypass surgery are also welcome. In addition, authors may also consider submitting interesting cases with important teaching points or novelties.

Keywords: Percutaneous coronary intervention; stents; balloons; angiography; angioplasty; cardiac catheterization.
