• IFR pullback accurate in predicting tandem, diffuse coronary disease

    5 monthes ago - By Healio

    Instantaneous wave-free ratio pullback may predict the physiological outcome of PCI with a high degree of accuracy in tandem and diffuse coronary disease.
    According to results published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions, the availability of instantaneous wave-free ratio pullback altered revascularization procedure planning in nearly one-third of patients compared with angiography alone.
    “An iFR pullback recording provides a physiological map of lesion severity along the length of a vessel and can be used to predict the physiological outcome post-virtual PCI with a high degree of
