Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Abstract: Background. The impact of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on angina and subsequent incidence of major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) rate remains controversial.

In selected CTO cases, triple access may facilitate the retrograde approach, allowing optimal collateral visualization.

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Long-term outcomes of patients with prior coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery undergoing chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have received limited study.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Angiography at 60 mo. post implantation of an Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold (Abbott Vascular) revealed a total occlusion at the distal scaffold. Within the proximal edge, OCT showed complete absorption of stent struts with a decreased mean
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Coronary plaque modification via coronary atherectomy has evolved dramatically since its introduction as an important adjunct to PCI in the subset of patients with complex plaques.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
We investigate the impact of Fielder XT-R and XT-A (Asahi Intecc) on antegrade wire escalation (AWE) crossing of Coronary CTO lesions. A total of 164 consecutive CTO lesions were treated with a primary AWE strategy using either guide wire as the
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Abstract: Background. Complex robotic percutaneous coronary intervention (R-PCI) is technically possible and leads to clinically comparable outcomes compared with the manual approach. However, there are limited data on the

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Coronary angiography demonstrated severe distal LM disease in a patient with heavy concentric calcification extending into the LAD and left circumflex arteries. Rotational atherectomy and lithotripsy were used to debulk plaque so that stenting could
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Abstract: Background. Chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has significantly evolved in recent years. Methods. We compared the clinical, angiographic, and technical
