JACC Identifies DEFER with 5-year Outcomes as Landmark Trial
Date:3/7/2008

UPPSALA, Sweden and WILMINGTON, Mass., March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Journal of the American College of Cardiology has recognized the five-year follow-up results of the DEFER (Deferral Versus Performance of PTCA in Patients Without Documented Ischemia) as one of the studies that had the greatest impact on cardiology in 2007, according to an article entitled "Highlights of the Year in JACC" by Anthony N. DeMaria, MD, et al. (JACC Vol. 51, No. 4, 2008 January 29, 2008:490-512)

Initially published in the May 29, 2007, issue of the peer-reviewed journal, DEFER concluded that patients treated based on fractional flow reserve (FFR) results had achieved long-term outcomes equal, or superior, to patients who underwent stenting solely based on angiographic evidence. The study's investigators measured FFR using PressureWire(R), a diagnostic tool developed by Radi Medical Systems AB.

Dr. Nico Pijls, the study's principal investigator, said, "From the DEFER study and other recent publications, it has become clear that the key issue in deciding which lesions should be stented is knowledge about whether a stenosis is responsible for ischemia. We are glad that JACC has recognized this study that demonstrates the importance of FFR and its role in interventional cardiology."

FFR expresses maximum achievable blood flow in a coronary artery with abnormal stenosis as a fraction of maximum blood flow in the absence of a stenosis. FFR is 100% specific in identifying which lesions are actually causing the flow restriction and may be treated.

"The DEFER data was, and continues to be, an important topic of discussion among cardiologists," said Jim Archetto, Chief Operating Officer of Radi Medical Systems, Inc. "There is a lot of uncertainty in interventional cardiology when it comes to determining whether or not a stent is necessary. Measuring FFR is the only way physicians can determine with precision that a suspect lesion requires treatment."
