JSCAI Special Issue: Transcatheter Interventions for Chronic Heart Failure
This special issue of JSCAI covers the diverse diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for heart failure patients, ranging from medical therapy and hemodynamic monitoring to transcatheter therapy of mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency and cardiac contractility modulation. This collection also provides important perspectives on issues affecting heart failure patients, such as neurocognitive dysfunction and cardiorenal syndrome. Emphasizing the multidisciplinary team approach and the evolving landscape of heart failure treatment, the issue underscores the need to ensure optimal assessment and selection of the most appropriate therapeutic strategies for patients.

A New Series from JSCAI
Edited by Larry S. Dean, MD, and Morton J. Kern, MD, this new series of vignettes will highlight points in the fundamental mechanisms of pressure and flow in the cardiovascular system as well as present unusual cases illustrating how a "pearl" of knowledge can change our thinking and potentially improve patient care.
We hope to expand the Pearls in Hemodynamics collection with case studies that amplify the importance of understanding invasive hemodynamics. We invite the submission of illustrative case examples so that others can learn as we all strive to provide the best care for our patients.
