FFR Guided PCI

Fractional Flow Reserve Percutaneous Coronary Intervention helps in ascertaining the pressure differences in case of coronary artery stenosis. It gives a fair idea to the cardiologist if the stenosis is blocking oxygen delivery to the heart muscle, a condition known as myocardial ischemia. During the procedure, a catheter gets inserted through the groin and an FFR – a small sensor at the tip of the catheter measures the pressure, temperature and severity of the lesion. This procedure helps the expert doctor to determine the amount of pressure decline caused due to vessel narrowing.
