Your genetics load the gun. Your lifestyle pulls the trigger

–Mehmet Oz

As we move into 4 years of publication and the 12th issue, we have a number of review articles on cardiac amyloidosis, history of genetics including the Indian contribution, and immune suppression after heart transplantation, especially in India. The original articles explore the spectrum of sudden death in India, yoga techniques applied to patients after cardiac surgery, innovative methods to reduce pain during injections, and nurse-lead cardiac clinics. In the curriculum section, we explore online websites for biostatistics, journal clubs, bedside cases with Eisenmenger's syndrome, and interesting cardiac images. We also have a variety of interesting cases describing unusual presentation or management where tricky surgical problems were management or a medical challenge was tackled like prosthetic valve thrombolysis in spite of a high international normalized ratio.

The conference report of Cardiovascular Research Convergence 2018 highlights some of the ongoing researches in institutions in the northern part of India.
