BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to develop and describe percutaneous coronary angiographic techniques to create a porcine model of acute coronary stenosis with methacrylate plugs that can by assessed using fractional flow reserve (FFR), invasive coronary angiography and coronary computed tomographic (CT) perfusion imaging without introducing artefacts… CONTINUE READING
