During the recent Scientific Sessions of the American College of Cardiology (ACC 2017) the results of two large studies in coronary physiology, DEFINE FLAIR and iFR SWEDEHEART, were presented.
Together, the population of these two studies exceed that of all available trials on FFR. The conclusions are highly relevant to understand the present and future of physiological guidance of coronary revascularisation.
We would like to share with you, within one week of its official presentation at ACC 2017, the results of these two trials at a dedicated international meeting to be held at Hospital Clinico San Carlos, Madrid, which will also include live case transmissions from the same Hospital showing practical use of state-of-art iFR and FFR technology.

This live streamed meeting is intended to inform and educate cardiologists on:
- The DEFINE FLAIR and iFR SWEDEHEART clinical trial design and outcomes
- To assess how these trial results may influence the use and adoption of coronary physiological assessment
- How expert operators integrate coronary physiology in their daily practice
- Interventional cardiologists
- Interventional cardiology fellows
