Contemporary guideline-driven practice dictates revascularization only for ischemia-causing lesions and medical therapy for other lesions. FFR provides accurate assessment of the functional significance of a lesion in a variety of clinical scenarios (e.g.: single lesions, diffuse disease, left main, ostial disease, side branches). OCT further enables assessment and treatment of disease via high resolution lesion evaluation (pre- and post-intervention).
