Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) is commonly measured in the cardiac catheterization laboratory to determine the significance of coronary stenosis and coronary artery disease. The technique is often used as an adjunct to coronary angiography in the clinical care of patients. In this lesson, we will describe the technique of FFR and discuss the interpretation of results in a clinical context.
You Will Learn
- To enumerate common indications for the measurement of FFR
- To describe the basic technique of the procedure
- To discuss the limitations of the technique and settings in which the results require more sophisticated interpretation
