The Incidence and Short-Term Outcomes of Periprocedural Myocardial Infarction Following Cardiac Surgery Across Two International Definitions Using the High-Sensitivity Troponin Assay
There are currently two guideline-recommended diagnostic criteria in use to define a periprocedural myocardial infarction (PPMI) following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG): the 4th Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction (UDMI) and the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI).
Diagnostic Performance of Quantitative Flow Ratio Compared to Fractional Flow Reserve and Instantaneous Wave-Free Ratio for Physiology Evaluation of Intermediate Coronary Artery Stenosis
European and American experts recommend physiology-guided myocardial revascularisation.1,2,3 Nevertheless, physiology-guided revascularisation does not exceed 10% in the best scenario, worldwide.
Feasibility of Slender CTO PCI Transradially with Limited Use of Hardware
Treating chronic total occlusions (CTO) by the antegrade approach requires appropriate devices and skill in resource-limited settings. Good guide-catheter support is crucial.1,2 Patients with diabetes and narrower radial arteries are prone to spasm with larger guiding catheters, and may benefit from a slender approach to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Coronary Flow Reserve May Be Used to Evaluate the Haemodynamic Significance of a Coronary Stenosis with Normal Fractional Flow Reserve Values: A Computational Fluid Dynamic Study
Today, coronary flow reserve (CFR) is used to evaluate the microcirculation, but not the haemodynamic significance, of coronary stenosis. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is the gold standard for this purpose, with a cut-off value of 0.8 for intervention. Its simplicity, however, limits its predictive value.
