Editor's pick of the year

Dear reader,

To pick 10 interesting papers, as editors pick,  from all the published papers in CVIR Endovascular 2021 is not really possible. Looking back at the body of published IR papers in 2021 they are all very interesting. Making a choice does therefore not mean that one paper is more interesting than the other. My choice is a personal reference, but any other choice would also have been possible.

Enjoy reading!

Jim Reekers,
Editor-in-Chief of CVIR Endovascular
