What are the causes of a suboptimal FFR after coronary stent deployment? Insights from a consecutive series using OCT imaging.

Abstract:

Aims: Fractional flow reserve (FFR) can be used to detect a suboptimal result after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A lower post-procedure FFR (<0.90) has been shown to be associated with adverse clinical outcomes at follow-up. This pilot study aimed to understand the mechanisms resulting in a suboptimal FFR and whether optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided optimisation could improve final FFR.

Methods and results: Thirty-five patie...
