How It Works
Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) Measurement for Informed Coronary Disease Intervention
FFR Measurement Correlates to the Likelihood of Ischemia
An FFR measurement above 0.80 indicates normal coronary blood flow and a non-significant stenosis. A measurement below 0.75 indicates a high likelihood that a stenosis may be causing ischemia.
Incorporating FFR Measurement into Procedures Significantly Reduces Major Adverse Coronary Events
When integrated into routine lab procedures, measurement of fractional flow reserve (FFR) has been shown to reduce the incidence of adverse events in patients being treated for complex coronary artery disease. Compared to angiography alone, FFR allows physicians to more accurately identify hemodynamically relevant stenoses, reducing rates of death, myocardial infarction and repeat revascularization.
Key findings from the FAME study, by Tonino et al. show a 28% reduction in major adverse cardiac event (MACE) rates and significant cost savings without prolonging procedure time.
Study Reports Integrating FFR into Procedures Improves Outcomes and Reduces Costs
The FAME study, recently published in The New England Journal of Medicine, shows that routine measurement of FFR in patients with complex coronary artery disease reduces MACE and makes stent placement more eficient and more cost-effective.
FAME Study Results
- FAME (FFR versus Angiography for Mutilvessel Evaluation)
- Randomized, prospective study – angiography only or angiography plus FFR
- 20 centers in US and Europe
- 1005 PCI patients undergoing DES stenting for multivessel disease
Compared to angiography-only procedures, FAME shows that FFR:
- Reduces composite rates of death, myocardial infarction, re-PCI, and CABG at one year by 28%
- Reduces mortality and myocardial infarction at one year by 34%
- Is cost-saving and does not prolong procedure time
- Decreases amount of contrast agent used
- Results in similar, if not better, functional status
