Here are the late-breaking trials and other key study presentations from the 2018 EuroPCR conference. This is the annual meeting of the European Association for Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) of the European Society of Cardiology. It took place May 22-25, 2018 in Paris. The annual meeting attracts more than 10,000 attendees.
