Stable CAD (Coronary artery disease)

Here you will find all the latest content on stable coronary artery disease (stable CAD) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

A complex and changing disease state requiring wide expertise, stable CAD can involve a diverse range of underlying chronic or evolutionary stages involving full use of all available tools, devices and techniques like those for invasive imaging and functional assessment. Taking into account underlying comorbidities such as diabetes is critical. Advances in imaging techniques, as well as the use of adjunctive pharmacotherapy, vascular access or invasive interventions such as bypass surgery, are important, as are understanding bleeding risks, all of which can be found here…

IFR-SWEDEHEART and DEFINE-FLAIR: iFR vs. FFR

Join W. Wijns as he explores issues surrounding the adoption of iFR or FFR as highlighted by two trials presented at ACC2017 – IFR-SWEDEHEART, from the well-known Swedish registry and DEFINE-FLAIR. Can the design of these trials shed light on the efficacy of either of these physiologic measurements? What important, and previously missing data, was finally reported? And the results of these trials – what impact will they have on the way you practice? Join us and find out…

This interview was recorded at the American College of Cardiology Scientific Sessions 2017 (ACC.17).

Image-based FFR during coronary catheterisation

From EuroPCR 2016

Imaging and Fractional Flow Reserve! While we’re waiting for larger studies to fully evaluate this novel new assessment procedure, the early results are in as M. Pellicano introduces FFRangio, a new tool promising to offer similar information to traditional FFR in less than 2 minutes during a regular coronary angiogram.

When available, FFRangio promises to be an excellent addition to the cathlab, fitting perfectly with the unmet needs of the interventional cardiologist who must have information fast on stenosis in a cost-effective and safe fashion…
