Abstract

Background Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an invasive method to assess the functional significance of coronary stenoses. The value of FFR in diabetic patients is controversial because of microvascular dysfunction. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of diabetes mellitus (DM) on FFR measurements.
