Radcliffe Cardiology
Dear Colleague,
The treatment of patients experiencing acute coronary syndromes (ACS) requires various strategies, including coronary artery revascularization. Fractional flow reserve (FFR) can be used to assesses the haemodynamic importance of an epicardial stenosis and can be performed at the time of coronary angiography. The use of FFR in patients with ACS remains controversial, but recent data from the FAMOUS-NSTEMI study have provided a significant advance in the utility of FFR during non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) interventions.

A white paper by Jamie Layland, MD (Peninsula Health, St. Vincent's Health, Melbourne, Australia) reviews the clinical data, revascularization strategies, culprit and non-culprit vessels, and FFR in the setting of ACS.
