Use of fractional myocardial flow reserve to assess the functional significance of intermediate coronary stenoses AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CARDIOLOGY Fearon, W. F., Takagi, A., Jeremias, A., Yeung, A. C., Joye, J. D., Cohen, D. J., Chou, T. M., Kern, M. J., Yock, P. G. 2000; 86 (9): 1013-1014


The goal of the present study was to compare the use of pressure-derived myocardial fractional flow reserve for detecting ischemia with nuclear stress imaging in patients undergoing stent placement for intermediate coronary lesions. We demonstrated that myocardial fractional flow reserve detects ischemia in intermediate coronary lesions accurately when compared with nuclear stress imaging.
