Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
The impact of intravascular ultrasound utilization for stent optimization on the long-term outcomes in chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary intervention has received limited study.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Abstract: Objectives. To develop and validate a hybrid algorithm to approach complex superficial femoral artery (SFA) chronic total occlusions (CTOs) in a step-wise fashion. Background. SFA-CTO represents one of

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)
The aim of our study was to look at the viability of myocardium in patients with CTOs in both infarct-related and non-infarct related occluded vessels with grade 3 collaterals.

We previously described the first real-world series of PCI involving Shockwave intravascular lithotripsy (S-IVL), including use in acute coronary syndromes and left main interventions. In this follow-up, we report the 1-year outcomes of patients

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.

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.
