How to use iFR pullback and Refinity rotational IVUS to perform an OM/Circumflex PCI while minimizing contrast use

In this short case example from St. Francis Hospital (Roslyn, NY), see Drs. Ziad Ali and Evan Shlofmitz utilize a variety of techniques and  technologies to perform a  PCI with an ultra-low contrast approach. They focus on the use of several simple techniques and then use iFR pullback to localize the ischemia and the rotational IVUS to plan their treatment as well as confirm their results.
