AbstractThirty percent of angiographically significant coronary lesions may be functionally significant. Physiological assessment is essential to treat intermediate coronary lesions before taking the decision for percutaneous intervention. Even when coronary artery bypass is planned as treatment modality in triple-vessel coronary artery disease, the SYNTEX II trial has shown that functionally significant lesion treatment by bypass grafts improves the outcome of these patients. In this article,
