EuroPCR 24 - We are joined onsite by Dr Carlos Collet (OLV Hospital Aalst, BE) to discuss the findings from a study analysing the influences of the pathophysiological patterns of coronary artery disease on the safety and efficacy of PCI.

The study aimed to assess the capacity of pullback pressure gradient (PPG) in predicting post-PCI fractional flow ratio (FFR), as well as the impact of PPG on procedural outcomes. 982 stable patients with at least one hemodynamically significant lesion intended to be treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were enrolled in the trial. Findings showed that PPG before PCI predicted post-PCI FFR, and periprocedural myocardial infarction was lower in focal disease as opposed to diffuse disease.

Interview Questions:

  1. What is the rationale behind this study?
  2. What is the patient population and study design?
  3. What are your key findings?
  4. What should be the impact of these findings on clinical practice?
  5. What further research is needed, and what are the next steps?

Recorded onsite at EuroPCR 2024, Paris.
