Summary

Dr Bernard de Bruyne, of the Cardiovascular Centre in Aalst, Belgium, reviews the current state of FFR practice including the evidence for it’s use in stable ischaemic heart disease and ACS. He reviews the results of important trials including FAME 2. He considers the routine use of FFR in clinical practice as part of an algorithm for assessment of IHD, in a paradigm of coronary artery disease where function trumps structure.
