Instantaneous Wave-free Ratio versus Fractional Flow Reserve to Guide PCI
01/01/70 - Coronary revascularization is warranted only if a patient has one or more coronary-artery stenoses that are hemodynamically important. Large randomized studies have shown that fractional flow reserve (FFR) is superior to angiographic assessment for the detection of hemodynamically important…

Use of the Instantaneous Wave-free Ratio or Fractional Flow Reserve in PCI
01/01/70 - For the past 20 years, physiological measurements obtained during invasive procedures have been used to guide coronary revascularization. Pioneering work supported the use of flow measurements to make safe decisions about revascularization, but this approach was soon superseded by the use of…

Assessment of Stable Coronary Lesions
01/01/70 - In recent years, concerns have been raised about the appropriateness of performing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patients with stable coronary artery disease. One objective measure that is used to assess the potential benefit of revascularization is fractional flow reserve (FFR). FFR…

Bystander Efforts and 1-Year Outcomes in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest
01/01/70 - Survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest has increased in several countries after improvements in bystander interventions and postresuscitation care. Despite these improvements, little is known about long-term functional outcomes, including how bystander interventions (cardiopulmonary…

Health Insurance and Emergency Department Use ? A Complex Relationship
01/01/70 - Throughout the nearly decadelong debate over the Affordable Care Act (ACA), policymakers have questioned how having health insurance affects health care utilization and, in particular, what expanded insurance coverage means for use of the emergency department (ED). ED use is of particular interest…
