Late-breaking clinical sessions on evidence-based coronary imaging
In line with the company’s commitment to supporting its innovations with clinical evidence, Philips’ clinical partners will present new data during late-breaking sessions at EuroPCR that could help inform treatment for PCI patients.
- Dynamic coronary roadmap for contrast reduction trial (DCR4Contrast): Prof. Javier Escaned, Head of the Interventional Cardiology Section at Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid Spain, will present results from the DCR4Contrast trial, the largest-ever randomized controlled clinical trial on this topic, which investigated the ability of Philips Dynamic Coronary Roadmap (DCR) to reduce the total iodinated contrast media volumes administered during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures, compared to PCI performed without DCR guidance. The late-breaker presentation will take place on Tuesday, May 16 at 12:00 to 13:30 (CET) in Room Maillot. Prof. Escaned will also present the results from the DCR4Contrast trial and is available for questions during the EuroPCR 2023 Press Conference taking place on Tuesday 16 May from 08:05 – 09:15am CET in the Press Room on Level 3.
- iFR versus FFR-guided revascularization decision-making: Dr. Takayuki Warisawa, Interventional cardiologist at NTT Medical Center in Tokyo, Japan, will present new data on iFR versus FFR-guided revascularization decision-making in left main disease. The late-breaker presentation adds to a growing body of evidence showing iFR improves patient outcomes and optimizes procedural results. The session will take place on Tuesday 16 May from 12:00 to 13:00 CET in Room Maillot.
- DEFINE-FLAIR five-year follow-up: Prof. Javier Escaned will also present 5-year data from the DEFINE FLAIR clinical trial comparing patient outcomes using instant wave-free ratio (iFR) and fractional flow reserve (FFR) in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. The late-breaker presentation will take place on Thursday, May 18 from 15:15 to 16:45 CET in Room Maillot.
- Radiographic imaging validation and Evaluation for angio iFR (ReVEAL iFR): Dr. Yoshinobu Onuma will present the results of this multi-center, prospective, single-arm, open-label data collection with centralized off-line data analysis intended to demonstrate the diagnostic performance of angiographic-derived iFR single plane angiogram derived physiology model using the invasive physiological measures of both iFR and FFR as the reference standards. The late-breaker presentation will take place on Thursday, May 18 at 15:15 to 16:45 CET in Room Maillot.
