Physiology guided complex PCI using Optowire™ 2nd Generation Fiber Optic Pressure Guidewire

Physiology guided complex PCI using Optowire™ 2nd Generation Fiber Optic Pressure Guidewire

Dr Hitoshi Matsuo
Presented by
Dr Hitoshi Matsuo
Gifu Heart Center
Moderated by
Dr Allen Jeremias
St Francis Hospital, New York

This webinar provides insight from Dr. Hitoshi Matsuo on the Opsens physiology system and its advantages in routine use to diagnose coronary artery disease. Dr. Matsuo will share interesting cases he performed in complex PCI performed at the Gifu Heart Center, in Japan. The presentation will examine the Opsens dPR novel resting index and the Optowire technology based on the 2nd Generation Fiber Optic sensor.



Dr Hitoshi Matsuo

Dr Hitoshi Matsuo is currently President of Gifu Heart Center, and Clinical Visiting Professor of Medicine in Gifu University School of Medicine. He graduated from Jichi Medical School in 1986. He spent one year at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in Baltimore as a research fellow of Nuclear Medicine from 1987. He dedicated his clinical research work on physiology and interventional cardiology using pressure guide wires at Gifu Prefectural General Medical Center, Toyohashi Heart Center and Gifu Heart Center. Dr Matsuo is now participating in and contributing to many international multi-center trials including DEFINE-FLAIR, international multicenter FFRCT registry (ADVANCE registry), 3V-FFR FRIENDS study, DEFINE FLOW study and FAVOR2 Europe and Japan.
