  • Precision Guided Therapy Leadership

    FFR has become the gold standard for objective, lesion specific measurement of ischemia in the catheterization laboratory. FFR and IVUS are supported by ACC/AHA/ESC and SCAI guidelines, reimbursed under current CPT codes and are a reported metric in national registry quality reports for top hospitals across the country. FFR and IVUS-guided PCI continue to gain acceptance over angiography alone, yet they are used in less than 20 percent of procedures in the U.S.

    Consistent with its cadence of innovation, Volcano is expanding its Functional Management offerings to include an investigational product called instant™ wave-Free Ratio or iFR™. In collaboration with physicians at Imperial College and Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Volcano is developing a technology with the objective of achieving FFR-like measurements without the use of Adenosine, a vasodilator injected to achieve maximum coronary flow, which can increase time, cost and complexity of the procedure, and cause patient discomfort. iFR is designed to provide a pharmaceutical-free means of assessing the functional performance of a discrete lesion as a measure of FFR.

    In an effort to make the benefits of FFR accessible to more clinicians and patients, Volcano is working with suppliers of hemodynamic monitoring systems to provide FFR on their systems. Volcano's Smart Map Pressure Instrument is now compatible with the FFR module of the Philips Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitori
