|Dr. Nico Pijls and Dr. C. Michael Gibson discuss new insights into pressure wire measurements
Flow experts Dr. Nico Pijls and Dr. C. Michael Gibson discuss the practical and clinical
uses of pressure wire measurements for treating coronary artery disease. Dr. Pijls
explains the benefits of using pressure wire measurements to determine which lesions are
appropriate for stenting when treating patients with multivessel disease. Dr. Pijls
compares and contrasts the clinical applications of intravascular ultrasound and pressure
wires. The results and design of the COURAGE trial are discussed. Dr. Pijls suggests
that interventions guided by the use of pressure wires may result better outcomes and be
more cost effective than procedures guided by angiography.
