Main Branch Versus Side Branch Ostial Lesion

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Seoul National University Hospital Identifier:
First received: April 7, 2011
Last updated: July 20, 2011
Last verified: July 2011
The investigators studied the relations between coronary angiography (CAG), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) in coronary ostial lesions.

Condition Intervention
Coronary Artery Stenosis
Device: Fractional flow reserve
Device: IVUS

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Relationship Between Fractional Flow Reserve and Coronary Angiography/Intravascular Ultrasound Parameters in Ostial Lesions: Major Coronary Ostial Lesions Versus Side Branch Ostial Lesions

Further study details as provided by Seoul National University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • lumen area [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    lumen area at ostial lesion

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • angiographic stenosis, % plaque area [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    angiographic and intravascular ultrasound parameters at ostial lesions of each major branch and side branch.

Enrollment: 77
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: June 2011
Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
ostial lesion
ostial lesion will be evaluated by IVUS and FFR
Device: Fractional flow reserve
Fractional flow reserve measured by pressure wire
Other Name: Radi Pressure Wire(Radi Medical Systems, Uppsala, Sweden)
Device: IVUS

intravascular ultrasound

:IVUS was performed in a standard fashion using an automated motorized pullback system (0.5mm/s) with commercially available imaging catheter

Other Name: iLab® Ultrasound Imaging System(Boston Scientific/SCIMED, Minneapolis, MN, USA)

Detailed Description:
Angiographic evaluation for ostial lesions is reported to be inaccurate in the assessment of the functional and clinical significance of a lesion. The investigators studied the relations between coronary angiography (CAG), intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) in coronary ostial lesions.
