Normal fractional flow reserve with a critical stenosis supplying viable myocardium.
A high-grade stenosis to viable myocardium typically produces a positive fractional flow reserve. In the present report, a case of subtotal occlusion of a saphenous vein graft to a viable myocardial territory with normal fractional flow reserve is described, and a possible explanation for this observation is discussed.
