Abstract

Coronary fractional flow reserve (FFR) has been advocated as the gold standard approach in assessment of the intermediate coronary stenosis. The aim of the current study was to delineate efficacy of contrast versus adenosine FFR. Recent literatures about the definition, features, clinical relevance, advantages/disadvantages of both aforementioned methods, were reviewed, scrutinized and reviewed. We searched through various databases such as National Library of Medicine (NLM), MEDLINE and PubMed up to August 2017. It appears credible that according to our brief review, clinical relevance of contrast-FFR is justified and due to its applicability, accessibility and budget friendly nature, it could be used as an alternative method of FFR measurement.
