The virtual ffr workflow has revolutionized the assessment of coronary artery lesions. It builds a 3D reconstruction of the coronary arteries and assesses pressure drop, resulting in a vFFR value. This enables assessment of severity and percentage of stenosis. The 3D reconstruction is also extremely valuable for planning interventions.

There is a growing body of clinical evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of vFFR in guiding revascularization. The FASTIII and LIPSIA STRATEGY trials are both multi-center randomized clinical trials investigating the effectiveness of vFFRguided revascularization vs FFR guided revascularization in over 4000 patients. Both trials have shown that vFFR is an effective tool for guiding revascularization. In addition, vFFR has also been subject to multiple single and multi-center trials investigating diagnostic accuracy to predict FFR.
How to know you might have heart problems
You might be experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, or heart palpitations. These are all signs that something is wrong and you should see a doctor right away. Other symptoms may include dizziness, nausea, fainting, swelling in the legs and feet, or pain in the arms and shoulders.
