Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is emerging as a useful clinical tool for assessing the functional significance of coronary atherosclerosis. As opposed to anatomical approaches, physiological measurements (particularly pressure-derived FFR) assess the function of the coronary circulation and offer the possibility of 'ad hoc' treatment. The use of FFR is still limited in France because there is no financial support. The present review will focus on coronary pressure-derived FFR.
