Interventional Cardiologists Nico Pijls, Bernard De Bruyne to Discuss Benefits of Measuring Coronary Pressure in Improving Multivessel PCI at ESC Congress 2007
Date:8/31/2007

EBAC-Accredited Workshop Set for Sept. 3

UPPSALA, Sweden and WILMINGTON, Mass., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Nico Pijls, M.D., Ph.D., and Bernard de Bruyne, M.D., Ph.D., will present the benefits of measuring coronary pressure, or Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR), in improving the outcomes of multivessel PCI in a workshop at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2007 in Vienna. The EBAC-accredited workshop, which is sponsored by Radi Medical Systems, will take place at 12:45 p.m. CEST on Monday, Sept. 3, in the Copenhagen Room in Zone 1 of the Messe Wien Conference Center.

Dr. Pijls, of the department of cardiology at Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, will cover "Assessment Of Ischaemia In The Cathlab: The Best And Easiest Way To Go." Dr. de Bruyne, with the Cardiovascular Center Aalst in Aalst, Belgium, will explore the "Diagnosis And Treatment Of Multivessel Disease: All In One." Both physicians were investigators in the DEFER study, which evaluated the appropriateness of stenting a coronary stenosis (abnormal narrowing) that appears to be angiographically significant but is not restricting blood flow enough to cause symptoms. Five-year results were published in the May 29 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

About FFR

FFR expresses maximum achievable blood flow in a coronary artery with abnormal stenosis as a fraction of normal maximum blood flow in the absence of a stenosis. It is calculated using an interventional guidewire with a specially designed sensor built into it. Using the well established value of 0.75, FFR is 100% specific in identifying which lesions are actually causing flow restriction and can be treated. FFR also documents the exact percentage of the reduction in flow associated with each lesion.
