The FISH&CHIPS Study: Real-world Study Reveals Significant Reduction in All-cause and Cardiovascular Mortality
Published: 23 October 2023
FISH&CHIPS two-year key outcomes associated with availability of FFRCT include:
- A significant 14% relative reduction in cardiovascular mortality and a significant 8% relative reduction in all-cause mortality.
- An increase in cath lab efficiency, driven by a 5% relative reduction in invasive cardiac angiography (ICA) and an 8% relative increase in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).
- A 14% relative reduction in additional non-invasive heart testing following CCTA.
- High prognostic value for FFRCT whereby patients with severely abnormal FFRCT values (≤0.50) had a 2x risk of all-cause death and a 3x risk of non-fatal MI compared to patients with normal FFRCT values.
Learn from our esteemed panel’s discussion with the PI of this important study. Delve into the details of the design, analyse the results and understand what led to these impressive benefits for patients and the cath lab.
FISH&CHIPS is real world, multi-centre, retrospective study including more than 90,000 patients assessing at a national level the incremental impact of adding FFRCT to a CCTA-first diagnostic paradigm for evaluating and managing coronary artery disease (CAD). The study was conducted in England and was funded by UK Medical Research Council (MRC).1,2.
In a dynamic interview format, our esteemed panelists will explore the nuances of the FISH&CHIPS study.
This video series is an essential event for cardiologists seeking to learn more about the modern way to diagnose CAD. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights from our esteemed panel and stay at the forefront of advancements in diagnosis and management of CAD using CCTA and FFRCT.
Recorded on-site at ESC Congress 2023, Amsterdam.

Consultant Interventional Cardiologist
Professor Derek Connolly is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist and the Director of Research and Development at Birmingham City Hospital. He is an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Birmingham, UK.
He trained in Cambridge, London, Edinburgh and San Diego where he was a Carnegie Scholar. He has a first-class degree in Pharmacology from the University of Edinburgh where he was the Brunton medallist and Keasbey Bursary holder. His PhD in molecular cardiology is from the University of Cambridge. He is the Chief or Primary Investigator of multiple large trials in Cardiovascular medicine. He developed one of the UK's first primary angioplasty programmes and one of the UK's largest cardiac CT programmes.
Professor of Interventional Cardiology
Prof Vijay Kunadian is Personal Chair and Professor of Interventional Cardiology at Newcastle University.
Prof Kunadian completed all her cardiology training in the North East of England. She undertook an international academic fellowship in cardiology at the TIMI/PERFUSE Study group, Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston MA.
Prof Kunadian has an international reputation in interventional cardiology and cardiovascular research, making her a sought-after and respected speaker at prominent national and international meetings. She has championed diversity in her specialty as a role model; only 5% of interventional cardiologist are female in the UK, <1% are clinical academics.
