isease, but does so in a larger patient population and in a randomized fashion," commented Morton Kern, MD, professor of medicine and associate chief, Division of Cardiology, University of California, Irvine.

FAME randomized 1005 patients diagnosed with multi-vessel coronary artery disease at 20 European and US centers to either angiography-guided PCI (n=496) or FFR-guided PCI (n=509) all using current DES regimens. FAME's objective was to compare angiographic guidance to FFR guidance and to determine which coronary lesions required revascularization. FAME demonstrated that FFR- guidance in routine multi-vessel PCI resulted in clinically-superior outcomes and reduced the composite of death, documented myocardial infarction, and repeat revascularization by 30 percent at one year. The study also demonstrated that adhering to an FFR-guided regimen for multi-vessel disease is cost beneficial to the hospital and payers by reducing procedural costs ($5,332 vs. $6,007), lowering average length of hospitalization (3.4 days vs. 3.7 days), and reducing the number of drug eluting-stents necessary per patient (1.9 vs. 2.7). The data also showed that the implementation of FFR did not add time to the multi-vessel PCI procedure.

DEFER

DEFER is a landmark study demonstrating that patients with intermediate disease not treated with PCI based on FFR guidance achieved long-term outcomes out to five years equivalent to patients who underwent PCI for similar intermediate lesions. DEFER outlines a revascularization strategy for angiographically equivocal stenoses that deploys FFR technology to identify and treat only those lesions producing reversible ischemia. The Journal of the American College of Cardiology has recognized the five-year follow-up results of the DEFER trial as one of the studies with the greatest impact on clinical cardiology in 2007.
