Measuring FFR During Cardiac Cath: Time to Go with the Flow?
Anecdotally, we’ve noticed that the use of fractional flow reserve (FFR) during cardiac catheterization seems to be increasing, in both community and academic centers. We pose these questions to our fellow members on CardioExchange:
- Do you feel that FFR is being overused, underused, or neither?
- Should some sort of objective assessment be mandatory in outpatient PCI?
- Do results with FFR vary among providers?
- Does the use of FFR improve care?
