Fractional Flow Reserve
The integrated FFR measurement (optional) enables the evaluation of the flow reserve without additional monitors and systems.
The Schwarzer Cardiotek evo uses the Pressure Wire TM Aeris from St. Jude Medical. Alternatively the evo system can also display results provided by other FFR units (e.g. Volcano Flowire). With the St. Jude Aeris the distal pressure values are transmitted to the Schwarzer Cardiotek preamplifier using wireless technology. This guarantees considerable freedom of movement at the table.
Furthermore, all hemodynamic measurements – including the FFR value – can now be gathered using one system and be documented in a single procedure report.
