To be eligible, you must send a screenshot or PDF of the completed crossword (or as much of it as possible) along with your name and contact information here. (Do not use the “SUBMIT” button on the crossword itself)


·       In clues, numbers in brackets indicate the number of letters in the answer. So, if the answer is “ISCHEMIA,” the clue will indicate (8). An answer with two separate words will include a comma, as in (5,4) for “HEARTTEAM.” A hyphenated word or trial name like “POTTER-AF” will show the hyphen between the numerals (6-2): do not use the hyphen or comma in the puzzle.

·       All answers relate to top cardiology news of 2023 (or general cardiology knowledge) and can be found with minimal searching on TCTMD.
