Abstract

Objective: Angiographic assessment of stenosis has limited predictive value for functionally significant lesions compared with fractional flow reserve (FFR). The recently developed angiographic DILEMMA score, which consists of minimal lumen diameter (MLD), lesion length (LL) and Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation (BARI) Myocardial Jeopardy Index (MJI) was found to have diagnostic value in predicting FFR <= 0.80. The present study was an investigation of prediction of FFR <= 0.80 using DILEMMA score and its relationship to resting distal coronary artery pressure/aortic pressure (Pd/Pa).
