Comparison of Coronary Wedge Pressure and Collateral Flow Index Between Main Branch and Side Branch Vessels

2014-08-27 03:16:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this trial is to compare the degree of collateral flow in the main vessel and the side branch vessel. Specifically, the trial will address the superiority of the recruitable collateral flow, using CFI as the surrogate marker, in the side branch compared with the main vessel.

Description

Although many interventional cardiologists are interested on how to intervene a bifurcation lesion, data on how to assess the functional significance of bifurcation lesions and which side branch vessel should be stented is largely missing. In an aspect of answering these questions, we have previously shown that a large majority of side branch vessels with significant anatomic stenosis (% stenosis≥75%) was not associated with functional impairment (FFR≥0.75), which also means that side branch vessels, compared with main vessel, may not be associated with adverse clinical outcomes, which may be the basic assumption of provisional stenting strategy for jailed side branch.

Collateral flow index (CFI=Pw-Pv/Pa-Pv) is a parameter that reflects the degree of collateral flow to the myocardium of interest and CFI<0.24 has been shown to be predictive of ischemia after balloon occlusion. Pw/Pa has also has been reported to predict ischemic vessel as accurately as CFI. Earlier studies on collateral blood flow have suggested that a cut-off value of Pw/Pa 0.30 best discriminates ischemic versus nonischemic vessel with an excellent specificity of 81%. However the value of measuring Pw/Pa or CFI in bifurcation lesions, especially in side branch vessels has never been investigated.

The purpose of this trial is to compare the degree of collateral flow in the main vessel and the side branch vessel. Specifically, the trial will address the superiority of the recruitable collateral flow, using CFI as the surrogate marker, in the side branch compared with the main vessel.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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 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).

Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).
