vFFR presentations @ EuroPCR

During EuroPCR 2019 the team of Erasmus Medical Center led by Dr. Joost Daemen gave two presentations on vFFR:

  • FAST I Extend study. In a patient cohort of 303 patients the correlation between vFFR and FFR of 0.89 has demonstrated (Emphasizing the same strong correlation as demonstrated in FAST I).
  • HeartTeam vFRR study. For the first time vFFR was evaluated in the context of the heart team. Using vFFR in a retrospective setting lead to 26% of patients referred to the heart team being reclassified, indicating that routine use of vFFR might impact heart team decisions
