Abstract

The decision for revascularization in patients with intermediate coronary lesions remains a challenging topic, particularly when objective data of reversible ischemia are lacking. In some of the patients, coronary revascularization is performed or deferred without definitive evidence on the clinical significance of the coronary stenosis. We investigated the usefulness of coronary flow reserve (CFR) measurements in 28 patients with intermediate coronary lesions. We compared 20 patients who underwent angioplasty based on Doppler-wire-derived CFR with 8 patients for whom angioplasty was deferred (diameter stenosis of 50.7 ± 2.0% versus 46.5 ± 3.1%, P
