FAME 2 Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Volcano participates in the $84M NIH-Sponsored ISCHEMIA Trial
Date:8/28/2012

re thrilled to provide our FFR and IVUS technology to the ISCHEMIA investigators for use in the next landmark stable coronary disease trial."

The International Study of Comparative Health Effectiveness with Medical and Invasive Approaches (ISCHEMIA) is a randomized controlled trial that will study 8,000 patients with stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD) and moderate to severe ischemia. Patients will be randomized between invasive revascularization therapies including PCI and more conservative treatment focused on optimal medical therapy. The study, funded by one of the largest grants ever awarded by the NIH for a comparative effectiveness trial, will enlist the collaboration of more than 150 medical centers around the U.S. and hundreds of sites in 33 countries worldwide. The ISCHEMIA trial enriches the population of patients enrolled by requiring documented proof of ischemia using non-invasive methods prior to enrollment and FFR as appropriate during the procedure.

"PCI outcomes have improved in the years since COURAGE, with second generation DES now standard of care and dramatic increases in the use of FFR and IVUS," continued Burnett. "Volcano now has close to 5,000 multi-modality FFR & Imaging capable systems installed around the world, and the use of FFR has more than tripled in the past three years. We are excited to support the ISCHEMIA trial by contributing our precision guided therapy tools like FFR and IVUS, and to better understand which therapy is right for each patient, especially when practicing modern day Functional PCI."
