Pressure Wire Versus Microcatheter for FFR Measurement: A Head-to-Head Comparison

EuroIntervention. 2017 Aug 15. Pouillot C, Fournier S, Glasenapp J, Rambaud G, Bougrini K, Vi Fane R, Geyer C, Adjedj J. Recently developed microcatheters can be used instead of pressure wire for fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement. We sought to assess the hemodynamic and clinical impacts of using larger profile device to measure FFR.
