Abstract

Aims: In intermediate coronary artery disease, discordance between anatomical and functional assessments persists and the diagnostic accuracy of an anatomical evaluation is not satisfactory for determining functional significance. We evaluated the impact of microvascular resistance on 'anatomical-functional discordance'.

Methods and results: In 97 intermediate …
