WHAT IS FFR?
FFR is the maximum flow down a vessel in the presence of stenosis compared to maximum flow in the hypothetical absence of the stenosis.
Pd = distal pressure
Pa = aortic pressure
Pd/Pa + hyperemia = FFR
FAME I RESULTS | Fractional Flow Reserve Versus Angiography for Multivessel Evaluation (F.A.M.E.)
The FFR group performed significantly better in MACE-free survival 30–360 days
The FFR group was statistically significant in Death/MI and MACE but improved in all metrics vs. the angio-guided group
WHAT THE NUMBERS SAY
FAME II RESULTS | Demonstrated that PCI was superior to medical therapy with FFR > 0.81>
FAME II randomized patients with FFR < 0.8 to PCI + MT? or MT compared to patients with FFR > 0.8 who received MT
83% Relative risk reduction in urgent revascularization in FFR PCI + MT group
FFR VS. ANGIO-GUIDED PROCEDURES
More quality outcomes. Reduced costs.
Over a 1-year period, FFR reduced MACE, MI, and death up to 40%
Savings of $2,385 per patient over one year in patients with multi vessel disease*
FFR reduced costly adverse events
FFE provides accurate diagnosis to reduce costs
