Summary

Speaker: Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, London, UK

Dr Sukhjinder Nijjer discusses the role of physiology in patients with diffuse and tandem coronary artery disease.  

Key learning objectives:

  • Using FFR where tandem lesions are present, it is difficult to discriminate true physiological stenosis severity 
  • iFR-Scout is easy to perform and measures physiological significance along the length of the artery without the need for adenosine
  • iFR is relatively independent of influence for tandem lesions within the normal autonomic range
  • iFR-Scout can be used to predict the likely post-PCI physiology result

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for an international audience, specifically interventional cardiologists and cardiologists. However, other healthcare professionals involved in the care of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients will also find this topical.

Unrestricted educational grant from Volcano Corporation

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the background of coronary physiology
  • Understanding of coronary blood flow regulation in unobstructed and obstructed coronary arteries
  • Learn what you need to know to implement iFR and FFR in your laboratory
