INTRODUCTION: Instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR) is a novel hemodynamic resting index used to assess the severity of coronary artery stenosis. iFR calculates the gradient across a coronary lesion during a period of diastole. The index has been tested against fractional flow reserve (FFR) with inconsistent results. We present a case of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) where iFR couldn’t accurately identify an ischemic lesion in comparison to FFR.
