• OBJECTIVES: The authors sought to evaluate the accuracy of instantaneous wave-Free Ratio (iFR) pullback measurements to predict post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) physiological outcomes, and to quantify how often iFR pullback alters PCI strategy in real-world clinical settings. (anglia.ac.uk)
  • METHODS: Angiographically intermediate tandem and/or diffuse lesions were entered into the international, multi-center iFR GRADIENT (Single instantaneous wave-Free Ratio Pullback Pre-Angioplasty Predicts Hemodynamic Outcome Without Wedge Pressure in Human Coronary Artery Disease) registry.

  • The FDA's approval of the Absorb GT1 BVS offers a new treatment option for individuals who are candidates for angioplasty, but would prefer an absorbable device rather than a permanent metallic coronary stent," said Bram Zuckerman, M.D., director of the division of cardiovascular devices at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
