Nagaraja, V; Mamas, MA; Mahmoudi, M; Rogers, C; Curzen, N;

Background\ud The assessment of patients presenting with angina using invasive angiography alone is imperfect. By contrast, fractional flow reserve (FFR) allows for assessment of lesion-specific ischemia, which is predictive of clinical outcome. A series of studies has ... View more
