Pressure-temperature Sensor-tipped Wire Coronary Flow Capacity May Predict Prognosis After PCI
Measurement of coronary flow capacity using a pressure-temperature sensor-tipped wire is feasible and may help identify patients with coronary artery disease who would benefit most from percutaneous coronary intervention, according to new data. The clinical value of coronary flow capacity has been confirmed in previous studies using Doppler-flow wire and positron emission tomography. However, the utility of these techniques is limited in daily clinical practice.
