Arterial stenosis is known to be one of the most serious cardiovascular diseases. Angiographical estimation of arterial stenosis provides limited information on the severity of the occlusion and the flow of blood through it. Hemodynamical assessment of the flow and pressure behaviour, is known to be clinically important. Hemodynamically based parameters,(More)
The objective of this study was to perform a hemodynamic evaluation of moderate (50-90%) renal artery stenosis (RAS) under conditions of rest and maximum hyperemia. Identifying patients with RAS who have hemodynamically significant stenoses and are most likely to benefit from revascularization is clinically important. Current methods used to evaluate RAS,(More)
The severity of coronary arterial stenosis is usually measured by either simple geometrical parameters, such as percent diameter stenosis, or hemodynamically based parameters, such as the fractional flow reserve (FFR) or coronary flow reserve (CFR). The present study aimed to establish a relationship between actual hemodynamic conditions and the parameters(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the reliability of pressure-derived coronary flow reserve (CFR) compared with flow- or velocity-derived CFR. BACKGROUND Coronary flow reserve has been reported to have important clinical implications for the evaluation and treatment of coronary artery disease. METHODS Using a pressure guide wire, coronary pressure(More)
