"Dear authors, The article represents the description of the novel guide extension-assisted stenting technique for selected CBLs. Through optimizing stent deployment, the technique may have the potential to reduce the risk of subacute stent thrombosis and future in-stent restenosis. The most appropriate lesions suitable for the technique, and some other practical tips are also described.

"The case report is well described as well as the litterature of how to treat coronary perforations. The idea to use a balloon remnant for embolization in coronary perforation indeed is a simple, efficient and cost-effective method for managing coronary perforations and may be an alternative for achieving hemostasis and preventing poor outcome."

"This is an interesting bibliometric analysis of depressive disorders during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The results regarding the origin of publications, the predominance of online surveys, the two major clusters of general population studies and studies among health workers, and the high citation rates were not surprising. Simultaneously, there was probably not enough research among patients with psychiatric disorders. This marks a disappointing trend. The analysis of the findings could have been a more detailed. "

"The comorbidity between bipolar and panic disorder has received a lot of attention. Apart from genetic factors, there could be many other shared mechanisms. One of them could be personality traits. The authors found that hypochondriasis, psychopathic deviate, masculinity-femininity, psychasthenia, schizophrenia, and hypomania (Ma) in MMPI, and novelty seeking, harm avoidance and self-transcendence in TCI, and STAI (state and trait) compared to the BP- group. The MMPI and TCI findings are more likely to be a non-specific association, while high levels of trait anxiety could predispose an individual with BD to a develop a number of different anxiety disorders. These issues have not been discussed. Therefore the implications of these " psychological predictors of bipolarity" in PD are not clearly made out. "

"This is a well conducted study on the impact of COVID-19 on high school students. The Impact of Events Scale-Revised and a self-designed questionnaire was used to gather data in an online survey using a social media site. Not surprisingly, a high rate of psychological problems was found including post-traumatic symptoms. There have been many such surveys during the pandemic with similar findings. Much like the others, this study lacked a nuanced analysis of the profile of psychological distress. For example, since the IES-R was used scores for intrusion, avoidance, and hyperarousal could easily have been reported. Moreover, some effort could have been made to analyse which of the symptoms were due to the fear of contracting the disease, and which were more due to the effects of the lockdown. Such results would have made this study different from others and added to our knowledge of the mental health impact of the pandemic. "

"This brief review focuses on the overlapping neurobiology of trauma and substance use disorders. The section on the overlap between PTSD & SUD is, however, the shortest one. There is no doubt that SUD comorbidity is extremely common in PTSD. But, it is also common in almost all other psychiatric disorders. Therefore, the aetiology of comorbid SUD in PTSD or other psychiatric disorders is likely to be complex and not just limited to shared dysfunction in the brain reward circuitry. In the past, there have been proposals that SUD shares brain substrates with eating disorders & obesity (the so called behavioural addictions). The shared brain mechanisms between SUD and other impulse control disorders is even more compelling. As far as the overlap between PTSD & SUD is concerned, overlap in dysfunctional brain areas mediating reward processing is possible. However, even according to the authors' review, the central role of intrusive memories in PTSD suggests that abnormalities in processing of traumatic memories might be a key underlying mechanism. This does not appear to be shared with SUD. Overall, a more critical review of the whole area with a discussion of these aspects would perhaps have been more useful."

"This is a well written review about the neuroplastic effects of ketamine & serotonergic psychodelics. The authors acknowledge that "One hypothesis is that all antidepressants share, in common, efficacy in driving neuroplasticity relevant to depression circuits." Presumably, it is their rapidity of response that differentiates ketamine & serotonergic psychodelics from other antidepressants. However, the authors have not mentioned ECT, rTMS and lithium which affect BDNF levels & alter synaptic plasticity. Among these treatments, ECT is also quite rapid acting. The other issue that is not clear is the shortlasting antidepressant effects of ketamine & ECT as opposed to longer lasting effects of antidepressants & lithium. If they all act by altering synaptic plasticity why is their a difference in their long-term effects? "

"This is a brief review of the effects of intimate partner violence. It focuses particularly on exposure of children to parental domestic violence, teen dating violence, and violence during coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Each of these areas merits separate reviews. It would have been better if the authors could have provided some hard data explaining the circumstances under which such violence occurs. That would justify the usefulness of their proposed intervention. Intimate partner violence during the pandemic has been much highlighted by the media. Nevertheless, it requires a systematic review to understand how it has become a bigger problem during the pandemic."
