A Diagnosis of CMD Can Improve Symptoms and Quality of Life

The recent Coronary Microvascular Angina (CorMicA) trial revealed that patients may benefit when coronary microvascular dysfunction is accurately diagnosed and appropriately treated:1

IMPROVEMENT IN ANGINA SEVERITY

† According to the Seattle Angina Questionnaire score.

The CorMicA study data1 reveals that adequate evaluation and optimal treatment of patients who have ischemia with non-obstructive coronary arteries (INOCA) can:

  • Relieve patient symptoms
  • Improve patient quality of life (QOL)
  • Reduce healthcare resource consumption

When patients are diagnosed and treated in fewer cath lab visits, overall healthcare costs may be reduced accordingly.

How to Diagnose CMD with the Coroventis Coroflow Cardiovascular System and PressureWire™ X Guidewire

The PressureWire™ X Guidewire and Coroventis CoroFlow Cardiovascular System can measure both IMR and CFR - allowing for a CMD diagnosis.2

Having a comprehensive physiology testing of both the epicardial arteries and microcirculation can provide clear diagnosis to guide treatment and outcomes.3
