Diagnostic accuracy of fractional flow reserve from anatomic CT angiography.
CONTEXT Coronary computed tomographic (CT) angiography is a noninvasive anatomic test for diagnosis of coronary stenosis that does not determine whether a stenosis causes ischemia. In contrast,Expand

Use of the Instantaneous Wave‐free Ratio or Fractional Flow Reserve in PCI
Background Coronary revascularization guided by fractional flow reserve (FFR) is associated with better patient outcomes after the procedure than revascularization guided by angiography alone. It isExpand

Prevention of radiocontrast medium-induced nephropathy using short-term high-dose simvastatin in patients with renal insufficiency undergoing coronary angiography (PROMISS) trial--a randomized
BACKGROUND Contrast media cause oxidative stress, which has been suggested as one possible mechanism responsible for contrast-induced nephropathy. Statins appear to have pleiotropic effects,Expand

Six-Month Versus 12-Month Dual Antiplatelet Therapy After Implantation of Drug-Eluting Stents: The Efficacy of Xience/Promus Versus Cypher to Reduce Late Loss After Stenting (EXCELLENT) Randomized,
Background— The optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after implantation of drug-eluting coronary stents remains undetermined. We aimed to test whether 6-month DAPT would beExpand
