WHAT IS FFR?


FFR is the maximum flow down a vessel in the presence of stenosis compared to maximum flow in the hypothetical absence of the stenosis.

 

Pd = distal pressure

Pa = aortic pressure

Pd/Pa + hyperemia = FFR

CLINICALLY SPEAKING


FAME I RESULTS | Fractional Flow Reserve Versus Angiography for Multivessel Evaluation (F.A.M.E.)

 

  The FFR group performed significantly better in MACE-free survival 30–360 days

  The FFR group was statistically significant in Death/MI and MACE but improved in all metrics vs. the angio-guided group

WHAT THE NUMBERS SAY


FAME II RESULTS | Demonstrated that PCI was superior to medical therapy with FFR > 0.81

 

  FAME II randomized patients with FFR < 0.8 to PCI + MT or MT compared to patients with FFR > 0.8 who received MT

  83% Relative risk reduction in urgent revascularization in FFR PCI + MT group

 

† Relative risk reduction

FFR VS. ANGIO-GUIDED PROCEDURES


More quality outcomes. Reduced costs.

 

  Over a 1-year period, FFR reduced MACE, MI, and death up to 40%

  Savings of $2,385 per patient over one year in patients with multi vessel disease*

  FFR reduced costly adverse events

  FFE provides accurate diagnosis to reduce costs

 

* Hospital savings are based on calculations by Boston Scientific
