Approximately 112 million people globally are affected by angina and undergo coronary angiography, the primary diagnostic test for angina.1
Too often patients with ischemia and no obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA) on angiography — remain undiagnosed.2
Coronary Microvascular Dysfunction (CMD)3 is defined as impaired blood flow to the microcirculation. A clear diagnosis and optimized treatment plan can improve outcomes for these patients at high risk for major adverse events (MACE).4
The CorMicA (CORonary MICrovascular Angina) study revealed that patients may benefit when CMD is accurately diagnosed and appropriately treated:4
Ischemic heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death globally.11 Yet chest pain—while often ischemic in nature—could have many etiologies, as illustrated.3 When chest pain is caused by ischemia, proper management depends on accurately identifying and treating the underlying cause of angina.
Only 41% of patients assessed for angina are found to have obstructive chronic Coronary Artery Disease.13 The majority, 59% of patients, assessed for angina are found to have no angiographic abnormalities, but still have symptoms of a coronary disorder.4,5

Indications: CoroFlow‡ is indicated to provide hemodynamic information for use in the diagnosis of patients with cardiovascular diseases.
CoroFlow‡ is intended for use in catheterization and related cardiovascular specialty laboratories to compute and display various physiological parameters based on the output from one or more measuring devices.
Contraindications: The system has no patient alarm functions. Do not use for cardiac/vital signs monitoring.
Indications: The PressureWire™ X Guidewire is indicated to direct a catheter through a blood vessel and to measure physiological parameters in the heart and in the coronary and peripheral blood vessels. Physiological parameters include blood pressure. The PressureWire™ X Guidewire can also measure blood temperature.
Contraindications: This guidewire is contraindicated for use in the cerebral vasculature.
Potential Adverse Events: Potential complications which may be encountered during all catheterization procedures include, but are not limited to: vessel dissection or occlusion, perforation, embolus, spasm, local and/or systemic infection, pneumothorax, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, hypotension, chest pain, renal insufficiency, serious arrhythmias, or death.
In addition, this device has a coating containing Polyethylene Glycol (PEG); potential allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) may occur during the interventional procedure if the patient is allergic to PEG.
