acute chest pain
Testing with fractional flow reserve derived from computed tomography (FFRCT) can be used to stratify otherwise indeterminate grade stenoses on cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA). Long-term clinical outcomes using FFRCT have been reported in stable heart disease but not for acute chest pain (ACP). This study analyzes clinical outcomes in patients with ACP who underwent FFRCT, including the risk of mortality, myocardial infarction (MI), invasive coronary angiography (ICA), and revascularization.
