The editors and staff wish to thank the international cardiovascular experts who were active in evaluating manuscripts for the JIC throughout 2016.  
This commentary underscores the need to embrace a "combat mentality" to approach the problem of cardiac shock.
This case demonstrates the utility of propagation mapping with animated dynamic maps to facilitate the understanding of the underlying mechanism and provide visualization of reentrant circuits of tachycardias in cardiac chambers with native barriers…
This case demonstrating the safe and effective use of orbital atherectomy in the renal vasculature suggests an opportunity for ongoing evaluation into expanded roles for this technology beyond the coronary and lower-extremity arterial beds.   J INV…
This case demonstrates inferior vena cava filter migration complicated by a submassive pulmonary embolism.
Vascular plugs have been used to close paravalvular leaks (PVLs), with variable results; the procedure is complex and technically demanding. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement, using a valve-in-valve approach, may provide an alternative approach…
This study was performed to provide contemporary contrast-induced patient discomfort data obtained during peripheral arteriography procedures using iso-osmolar iodixanol 320 mg I/mL, compared to low-osmolar iopamidol 370 mg I/mL.
This study evaluated long-term results following successful endovascular therapy for chronic total occlusion below the knee using the retrograde approach after a failed antegrade approach.
An analysis of our first real-world experience with the second-generation, mechanically expanded, fully repositionable transfemoral Lotus TAVR device (Boston Scientific).
