By Tommaso Gori, Massimo Fineschi

This booklet experiences the idea and perform of fractional move reserve (FFR)-guided coronary intervention, a strategy that provides feel and a reason to day-by-day judgements within the interventional suite. FFR counsel offers targeted info on coronary hemodynamics for the interventional heart specialist. this system has profound functional implications for healing judgements and for the analysis of sufferers. ​

The Atlas of FFR-Guided Percutaneous Coronary Interventions offers practising physicians transparent details to appreciate either the complexity of the approach and the proper technique to observe it. it truly is designed either to aid more youthful school and people in education, and to behave as a scientific source for more matured practitioners. utilizing the scientific circumstances defined, the reader can discover ways to enjoy the pitfalls, information and tips that simplify the functionality and interpretation of FFR and iFR.

43 5, 7 Clinical Decision-Making The first FFR assessment confirmed the functional significance of the angiographic stenosis. This is particularly important in a 3-vessel disease patient, since FFR can downgrade the patient to 1 or 2-vessel disease, therefore influencing the decision between PCI and surgery. , above the threshold of hemodynamic significance but still demonstrating the presence of diffuse atherosclerosis. Based on the FFR ­findings, and in the absence of a focal pressure drop, it was decided not to proceed with stenting in the proximal segment.
