Introduction - Fractional flow reserve (FFR) is a method to determine the significance of a lesion. Although an FFR measurement of < 0.75 is accepted to show ischaemia, the effect of the location of the lesion on the coronary artery is not known. This study investigates the effect of lesion location on the FFR measurement.
