Abstract

It is often hard to select a treatment strategy for equivocal left main coronary artery (LMCA) disease. We investigated the usefulness of coronary pressure (CP) measurement for determining the treatment strategy in intermediate LMCA disease. We measured CP in 15 consecutive patients with equivocal LMCA disease (age 67.6 ± 7.5 years, 14 males). Myocardial fractional flow reserve (FFRmyo) was obtained as the ratio of CP distal to the lesion/aortic pressure under maximal coronary dilation. Patients with FFRmyo ≥0.75 and
