7. Drug-coated balloons/stents and other technologies for peripheral artery disease

6. Benefits of patent foramen ovale closure on risk for recurrent stroke

5. Optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy after stenting

4. Culprit lesion only vs. multivessel PCI

3. PCI vs. medical therapy for stable ischemic heart disease; ORBITA trial results draw attention

2. TAVR use expanding in patients with intermediate and low risk

1. New technologies emerging for transcatheter mitral valve replacement, repair
