      Coronary optical coherence tomography-derived virtual fractional flow reserve (FFR): anatomy and physiology all-in-one | European Heart Journal

      Most invasive coronary imaging modalities only provide anatomical information from which physiologic significance is inferred. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) and other physiologic indices of lesion severity are more reliable methods to identify physiologically significant lesions. Currently, accomplishing both anatomic and physiologic interrogation of an intermediate coronary stenosis requires the use of multiple devices within the coronary artery. Coronary angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and FFR were performed in a left anterior descending artery harbouring an intermediate lesion. Quantitative coronary angiography (QAngio XA 7.3, Medis, the Netherlands) and OCT analysis were performed (QIvus 3.0, Medis, the Netherlands). Angiography and ...

      Advances in three-dimensional coronary imaging and computational fluid dynamics: is virtual fractional flow reserve more than just a pretty picture?

      Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has shown a high success rate in the treatment of coronary artery disease. The decision to perform PCI often relies on the cardiologist’s visual interpretation of coronary lesions during angiography. This has inherent limitations, particularly due to the low resolution and two-dimensional nature of angiography. State-of-the-art modalities such as three-dimensional quantitative coronary angiography, optical coherence tomography and invasive fractional flow reserve (FFR) may improve clinicians’ understanding of both the anatomical and physiological importance of coronary lesions. While invasive FFR is the gold standard technique for assessment of the haemodynamic significance of coronary lesions, recent studies ...
