However, our findings remained robust when we excluded complex lesions. Furthermore, based on the Appropriate Use Criteria, angiographic determination of stenosis severity remains a cornerstone in revascularization decisions. There are potential remedies to the limitations of QCA. There is evidence that group reading can improve the accuracy of interpretations. Moreover, there may be ways to easily incorporate some of the principles of QCA into real-time practice, such as a standardized calibration process using specific catheters.
Also, feedback to practitioners, enabling calibration of their interpretations, might be useful—as might be computerized training programs. In addition, the development of machine-learning techniques 22 may provide tools to help physicians interpret coronary stenosis more accurately. Finally, FFR may be estimated with techniques such as computational fluid dynamics. Certain limitations should be considered in the interpretation of this study.
Quantitative Coronary and Left Ventricular Cineangiography: Methodology and Clinical Applications
First, hospitals participating in the study represented a select group of tertiary care facilities, so we may have underestimated the magnitude of misinterpretation had less sophisticated hospitals been included. Second, owing to the small number of physicians in each hospital, we were unable to assess the between-physician variation in a hospital. Third, this is a pragmatic study of actual practice and we do not have details on how they produced their estimates of lesion severity. Finally, we did not evaluate cases where PCI was not performed and were unable to assess when angiographically severe stenoses were underappreciated.
In this large study of patients undergoing contemporary PCI in China, we found that PVA significantly overestimated coronary stenosis severity compared with independent measurements by QCA, supporting the need for greater use of functional assessments prior to the performance of PCI. Large variations across hospitals and among physicians suggest that efforts are urgently needed to improve the accuracy of interpretations of coronary angiograms and to optimize the selection of patients for PCI in current clinical practice.
