A book holds a house of goldChinese ProverbWow, what a great opportunity to partner for the fourth year with CIT 2018 ‐ China Interventional Therapeutics in presenting a supplement issue focusing on the research and science that will be presented during this outstanding program March 22–25 2018. Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions has been privileged to Partner with the organizing committee in recognizing the best of the best in manuscripts from CIT 2018. This international meeting, Organized by the Chinese Medical Association, in partnership with over 38 international organizations will attract more than 8,000 attendees from across the broad spectrum of cardiovascular scientists and practioners who are focused on interventional cardiac and vascular procedures. The focus of the meeting “C‐cooperation, I‐innovation and T‐Transition” is clearly evident in the manuscripts selected for this issue.The manuscripts were selected from a large number of submissions and carefully reviewed by the Supplement Guest Editors, Professor Doctors RunlinGao, Bo Xu and Shaoliang Chen. I am indebted to them for their superlative efforts in selecting cutting edge topics as well as assisting the authors with edits and style. Several of the manuscripts, based upon their priority score, might have been considered for inclusion in a regular issue of Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions. The quality of these manuscripts reflects the inquisitiveness and scientific rigor that is occurring in Interventional Cardiology in China today. In fact, I have chosen one article to be simultaneously released with the CIT Scientific Sessions due to its high impact.Steven R. BaileyThe manuscripts broadly represent the field of interventional cardiology focusing on such topics as risk stratification to define late outcomes of patients with Left Main or Three vessel disease who present with myocardial infarction to the impact of spotty calcification on response to statin therapy. In addition to therapy for coronary bifurcations, the impact of Carotid Artery Surgery on subsequent open heart procedures is analyzed. I am certain that the reader will find transitional concepts, interesting clinical questions on how to cooperate with the health care team and innovative approaches to diagnosis and treatment in the CIT issue. I am hopeful that you find this supplement an important adjunct to the on site learning with over 1400 didactic presentations, 600 clinical cases and 40 live cases. Just as a book holds a house of gold, this issue and the CIT 2018 provides you with invaluable knowledge.
