    Accuracy of intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography in identifying functionally significant coronary stenosis according to vessel diameter: A meta-analysis of 2,581 patients and 2,807 lesions

    Introduction Accuracy of intracoronary imaging to discriminate functionally significant coronary stenosis according to vessel diameter remains to be defined. Methods PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar were systematically searched for studies assessing diagnostic accuracy (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve [AUC], the primary end point) and sensitivity and specificity (the secondary end points) of minimal luminal area (MLA) or of minimal luminal diameter (MLD) derived from intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) or optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect functionally significant stenosis as determined with fractional flow reserve (FFR). Results Fifteen studies were included, 2 with 110 patients analyzing only left main (LM ...
