The impact of post-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) fractional flow reserve (FFR) has been assessed in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). In this touchCARDIO interview, we speak with Dr Zsolt Piroth (Gottsegen National Cardiovascular Institute, Budapest, Hungary) to discuss the prognostic value for measuring post-PCI FFR and intravascular imaging in CAD. Click here for part 2 of the interview discussing the FAME 3 substudy.
The abstract entitled ‘FAME 3 Substudies: Clinical Outcomes Related to Anatomic vs Functional Significance and Prognostic Value of Post-PCI FFR II’ was presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference, 16 – 19, September 2022.
What was known about the value of measuring post-PCI FFR and intravascular imaging in patients with coronary artery disease? (0:22)

Gregg Stone, ACC 2023: Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair for functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure
Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively treat functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure patients. Compared to traditional surgical approaches, TEER offers benefits such as reduced hospital stay, lower risk of bleeding and infection, and faster recovery time. Additionally, TEER has been found to improve symptoms and quality of life […]

The COAPT trial investigated the use of the MitraClip a novel device for patients with secondary mitral regurgitation, a condition in which blood leaks backward through the mitral valve into the left atrium of the heart. In this touchCARDIO interview Dr Gregg Stone (Mount Sinai Heart Health System, New York City, NY, USA) discusses the […]
