Post-PCI FFR Values and Post-PCI IVUS Findings – 2-Year FFR REACT Results (NEW)

This study examines the influence of post-PCI intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) evaluation on operator strategy. The objective is to evaluate the effects of additional optimization in patients with low post-PCI FFR values. The trial indicates that performing additional optimization techniques improves post-PCI FFR in patients with FFR < 0.90. The FFR REACT trial utilized IVUS guidance […]

FFR-Guided PCI Optimization Direct by IVUS – 2-Year FFR REACT Results (NEW)

The objective of this study was to examine the impact of IVUS-guided post-PCI optimization on the occurrence of target vessel failure (TVF) at a 2-year follow-up, in comparison to standard of care. The study was conducted after the FFR React trial, where intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) was utilized to guide PCI optimization in patients with post-PCI […]

The study employs the ACIST Navvus® Rapid Exchange FFR MicroCatheter, known for its deliverability and crossability. Additionally, this innovative device empowers users with the freedom to select their preferred guidewire, for swift and precise FFR […]

Dissections Identified by IVUS vs. Angiography Alone (NEW)

This informative graph demonstrates the effectiveness of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) compared to angiography in identifying dissections. Key findings indicate that IVUS outperforms angiography, identifying 4 times more post-stent dissections, 3.4 times more post-angioplasty dissections, and 6 times more post-atherectomy dissections. These results underscore the benefits of utilizing the IVUS system and intracoronary imaging for accurate […]

Femoropopliteal Artery with Thrombus Identified (NEW)

This graphic highlights an outcome disparity between intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and angiography, specifically when examining the femoropopliteal artery. The data reveals that IVUS identified twice as much thrombus compared to angiography. This disparity underscores the enhanced thrombus detection capability of IVUS/intracoronary imaging in this arterial segment.   Note: See full resource above for complete citations […]

Peripheral Artery Lesions with Calcium Identified (NEW)

This graphic depicts a comparison between intravascular imaging (IVUS) and angiography in identifying peripheral artery lesions with calcium. Within the same lesions, IVUS detects 69% more calcium compared to angiography. This data highlights IVUS/intracoronary imaging’s ability to accurately identify and quantify calcium deposits in peripheral artery lesions.   Note: See full resource above for complete […]

IVUS vs DSA in Patients with PAD (NEW)

In this graphic, a comparison is presented between intravascular imaging (IVUS) and Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD), focusing on different locations. The study’s findings indicate that visual estimation measurements obtained from angiographic images were consistently smaller in all arterial segments compared to those obtained from IVUS assessment. This highlights […]
