Practical tips and tricks for the measurement of fractional flow reserve.
Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions
Coronary pressure measurement has emerged as one of the most promising tool to assist interventional cardiologist to make accurate clinical decisions. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a simple way of reliably assessing the functional consequences of coronary atherosclerosis. The training in FFR is easy, and coronary pressure measurements can be obtained swiftly in the catheterization laboratory. This review outlines the practical set up of FFR in the catheterization laboratory and also discusses the potential pitfalls in the measurement of FFR.
