    “The younger one develops type 1 diabetes, the higher the risks for heart disease and the greater the average loss of life, up to 16 years on average when type 2 diabetes develops under age 10 years,” Naveed Sattar, MD, professor of metabolic medicine at the BHF Glasgow

    Among patients who underwent fractional flow reserve and in whom revascularization was deferred, patients with low coronary flow reserve were more likely to experience adverse events during 5-year follow-up than those with preserved coronary flow, according to new data.
    The study included consecutive patients who underwent clinically indicated coronary angiography and FFR and coronary flow reserve measurements for at least one coronary artery at five university hospitals in the Republic of Korea.
