Preop Fractional Flow Reserve on Arterial Bypass Function
“Impact of Preoperative FFR on Arterial Bypass Graft Functionality”
This study was designed to evaluate the correlation between pre-operative FFR and the functionality of arterial bypass grafts six months after coronary artery bypass grafting. Patients with multi-vessel coronary artery disease will undergo both a coronary angiogram and FFR during their diagnostic workup. All patients will be referred for surgical revascularization (CABG) with planned use of arterial grafts. Six months after surgery, patients will undergo an angiogram to assess the functionality of the bypass graft and anastomosis.
Procedure - Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR)
An FFR will be performed pre-operative to the CABG procedure
