Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR)
Abbreviated as FFR, Fractional Flow Reserve is a technique that aims at detecting whether a patient with cardiac disease is treatable with only medication, or would require an invasive procedure such as stent placement or bypass surgery. While having the advantage of saving lives, the benefits of the FFR method include avoiding unnecessary surgery as well. Additionally, the implantation of stents guided by the FFR has been economically attractive.
