CCTA-FFR Registry for Risk Prediction

2019-08-01 15:08:46 | BioPortfolio


The investigators sought to investigate the prognostic implication of qualitative and quantitative plaque analysis on coronary CT angiography (CCTA) according to fractional flow reserve (FFR). The main objective was to develop a comprehensive risk model by using clinical risk factors, FFR and CCTA parameters.


Coronary CT angiography (CCTA) is an evolving noninvasive modality in diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). Its incremental prognostic value over traditional scheme of risk prediction has repeatedly been demonstrated. Beyond the assessment of CAD severity, the prognostic value of CCTA has increased with comprehensive plaque analysis. Certain plaque features on CCTA have a prognostic value in the prediction of future coronary events. The concept of fractional flow reserve (FFR) has been developed as an invasive index of the functional severity of stenosis. FFR represents maximal blood flow to the myocardium supplied by an artery with stenosis as a fraction of normal maximum flow. In moderate stenotic lesion, determining whether to perform PCI based on FFR is a current guideline, and has been proven to reduce unnecessary revascularization procedure and improve clinical prognosis. However, clinical events still occur in patients with FFR >0.80. In a recent study, the prognosis in the vessel with FFR > 0.8 was investigated. However, a comprehensive risk model according to FFR has never been investigated. Therefore, the investigators sought to investigate the prognostic implication of qualitative and quantitative plaque analysis on CCTA according to FFR. The main objective was to develop a comprehensive risk model by using clinical risk factors, FFR, and CCTA parameters.

Patients who underwent CCTA within 90 days before FFR measurement will be included. The study population will be from 2 different registries. The 3V-FFR-FRIENDS registry (NCT0620122050) enrolled a total of 1,136 patients (3,298 vessels). Among them, 299 patients who underwent CCTA within 90 days before FFR measurement will be included. The institutional registry of Tsuchiura Kyodo General Hospital included 448 patients who underwent FFR measurement and CCTA within 90 days. By retrospectively collecting clinical outcome data, coronary angiographic data, physiologic indices, and CCTA data from two registries, the CCTA-FFR Registry for Development of Comprehensive Risk Prediction Model will be created. For 3V FFR-FRIENDS registry (NCT0620122050), the collected clinical data for the previous study will be used, and 5-year outcome data will be collected from Seoul National University Hospital, Keimyung University Dongsan Medical Center, and Inje University Ilsan Paik Hospital. For the Institutional registry of Tsuchiura Kyodo General Hospital registry, the investigators will collect the baseline characteristics of participants, CCTA data, and clinical outcome data followed until Mar 2019.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.

A disorder of cardiac function caused by insufficient blood flow to the muscle tissue of the heart. The decreased blood flow may be due to narrowing of the coronary arteries (CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE), to obstruction by a thrombus (CORONARY THROMBOSIS), or less commonly, to diffuse narrowing of arterioles and other small vessels within the heart. Severe interruption of the blood supply to the myocardial tissue may result in necrosis of cardiac muscle (MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
