Dr. Joost Daemen, an Interventional Cardiologist at the Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Jurgen Ligthart, a Percutaneous Imaging Specialist at Erasmus, are the hosts of this informative webinar series. The primary focus is on enhancing PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) using FFR (fractional flow reserve) and HD-IVUS (high-definition intravascular ultrasound). The series addresses the pressing need to mitigate the long-term risk of target vessel failure (TVF) following contemporary PCI procedures. To achieve this, the webinar series explores the utilization of the ACIST HDi® HD IVUS System and Kodama® HD IVUS Catheter in conjunction with the Rxi® Rapid Exchange FFR System and Navvus®II Rapid Exchange MicroCatheter. Through an examination of diverse imaging, real-life cases, and corresponding outcomes, the effectiveness of the HDi® System for optimizing PCI is evaluated. Join us in this session to gain insights into the potential of the HDi® System in driving PCI optimization.
- The long-term risk of target vessel failure (TVF) after contemporary PCI remains concerning
- Post-PCI FFR <.90 has been linked to an increased rate of major adverse cardiac events
- Post-PCI FFR values can be increased by additional treatment
- Whether additional optimization improves outcome remains unknown
“The Navvus® MicroCatheter, which is a thin monorail micro catheter with optical sensor technology, allowing a physiological lesion assessment over any type of routine guidewire. So that is the big advantage of this system. With the optical technology that really limits the amount of drift you will encounter and with the ability to do a pullback without losing wire position. I think that is a critical advantage of this product that can be used as we will demonstrate to you both pre as well as post procedurally.” – Dr. Daemen
