Coronary angiography incompletely delineates the physiologic consequences of many epicardial stenoses. Intracoronary translesional flow velocity measurements using the Doppler flow wire during cardiac catheterization provide immediate data discriminating the physiologic significance of coronary stenoses. The validity and accuracy of the flow wire for analyzing lesion hemodynamic significance have been confirmed in multiple studies. Flow velocity analysis provides objective criteria for refining… CONTINUE READING
