Angiography-Derived FFR: Complicated Software or Imminent Reality?

Angiography-derived fractional flow reserve (FFR) demonstrated substantial usefulness, especially in patients with three-vessel lesions. The functional SYNTAX score derived from angiography has the potential to redefine prognosis and treatment strategies compared with the classic anatomical SYNTAX score. This study sought to investigate the applicability of this method in patients with multivessel lesions included in the

SYNTAX II: Better Stents, IVUS, FFR, or a Combination of All of Them to Catch Up with Surgery

In patients with 3-vessel disease, surgery obtained better outcomes than angioplasty, according to results from the SYNTAX and FREEDOM trials, which used first-generation drug-eluting stents. Even in the BEST trial, which used new-generation stents, surgery still offered far better outcomes. Nobody is surprised by the fact that, whenever angioplasty evolves due to a new device
