MAASTRICHT, Netherlands, May 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A highly innovative software, developed by Pie Medical Imaging - PMI - B.V. (Esaote Group) will be presented at EuroPCR 2018, the world-leading course in interventional cardiovascular medicine, held in Paris, Palais des Congrès (France) between 22 - 25 May 2018.

This software - called CAAS vFFR (Cardiovascular Angiographic Analysis Systems for vessel Fractional Flow Reserve) - can calculate the pressure drop and vFFR value in the coronary artery non-invasively, which means that there is no need for a pressure wire and hyperemic agent.

FFR is an established technique used in interventional cardiology to measure pressure differences across a coronary stenosis. Based on this, cardiologist may take a decision on whether a coronary stenosis has to be treated with angioplasty or not. This examination is done during a catheterization procedure with the support of costly pressure wire and hyperemic agent.

CAAS vFFR allows clinicians to use two standard angiograms taken during a standard catheterization procedure as input to get access to coronary physiology assessment. For percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI), within one easy workflow, CAAS vFFR offers a unique combination of functional and anatomical lesion assessment (such as percentage stenosis) to support the interventional cardiologist in the clinical decision making process.

FAST, a clinical study led by Ken Masdjedi, MD and Joost Daemen MD, PhD from Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam shows that vFFR as calculated using CAAS vFFR has a high linear correlation to invasively measured FFR.

"In the FAST study" said Joost Daemen MD, PhD, principal investigator "we demonstrated that vFFR as calculated using CAAS vFFR has a high linear correlation to invasively measured FFR and high diagnostic accuracy to detect FFR ≤ 0.80. vFFR is a promising, fast and easy to use tool to assess coronary physiology without the need for a costly pressure wire or hyperemic agent."

"We are very proud of this technological and clinical achievement" declared René Guillaume, PMI CEO "which is the result of 30-year commitment and experience of our Company in the field of cardiovascular analysis software and of the successful collaboration with the most prestigious medical and scientific research centers".
