Comparison of Outcomes between Fractional-Flow-Reserveand Angiography-Directed Intervention in Non-ST Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2019 Mar;29(3):268-273

Department of Cardiology, Heart Center, Chongqing Three Gorges Central Hospital, Wanzhou, Chongqing, 404000, China.

Among the sick patients suffering from non-ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS), the accuracy of fractional flow reserve (FFR)-directed percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is still ambiguous. Studies were obtained from PubMed, Embase, Wanfang Data, and Cochrane Library electronic statistics from their initiation up to April 2018, to explore the differences between the FFR-directed approach and the coronary angiography (CA)/stress perfusion scintigraphy (SPS)-directed approach in the outcomes of NSTACS patients. Odds ratio was determined for individual studies, quality assessments, heterogeneity, and publishing bias analyses. Read More
