OCT Bests FFR Guidance in Optimizing PCI

0 Read Comments                

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance is superior to fractional flow reserve (FFR) guidance in assessing and intervening in angiographically intermediate coronary lesions (AICL) and optimizing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCIs), a new study suggests.

OCT guidance was found to be superior to FFR guidance, with a lower occurrence of the composite of MACE and significant angina. However, FFR guidance was associated with a higher rate of medical management and lower costs. The results were presented at Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2019 and simultaneously published online September 29 in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
