HeartFlow, Inc., announced new data demonstrating that the use of the investigational HeartFlow Planner, a real-time, non-invasive interactive planning tool, led to a change in treatment strategy in 45% of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and reduced the need for invasive physiology. The data from the BOWIE (enefits of btaining information for planning ith noninvasive FFRCT prior to nvasive valuation) study were presented by Eric Van Belle, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Cardiology, Head of the Lille Heart & Lung Institute, and principal investigator for BOWIE, as a late-breaking trial at the EuroPCR Conference in Paris, France.
“The BOWIE results highlight the potential benefit of using a real-time interactive tool prior to a revascularization procedure as it can help inform the treatment plan, optimize completeness of revascularization, and streamline resource utilization in the cath lab,” said Campbell Rogers, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, HeartFlow.
