Abstract

Background-We aimed to compare the long-Term clinical outcomes between fractional flow reserve (FFR)-guided and routine drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation in patients with an intermediate coronary stenosis. Methods and Results-A total of 229 patients with an angiographically intermediate coronary stenosis were randomly assigned to FFR-guided or Routine-DES implantation group. For FFR-guided group (n=114), treatment strategy was determined according to the target vessel FFR (FFR
