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

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
The challenging nature of CTO interventions involves regularly dealing with support-related issues, uncrossable/undilatable lesions, manipulation of equipment in the subadventitial space, and the treatment of complications such as perforation and
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
A chronic total occlusion may increase the risk of appropriate implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy. Therefore, we evaluated all patients who received an ICD during 5-year follow-up in the EXPLORE trial.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Our objectives were to assess the incidence of no-reflow in patients undergoing CTO-PCI, to analyze possible causes and differential diagnoses, and to identify useful management approaches. We reviewed no-reflow complications in this multicenter
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Abstract: Laser coronary angioplasty was developed to modify atherosclerotic plaque and help with the acute and longer-term limitations of balloon angioplasty, namely, intimal dissection and restenosis, respectively. Excimer

We retrospectively evaluated procedural and clinical outcomes in consecutive patients undergoing Tandem Heart assisted CTO-PCI at our institution.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a dual injection using a single sheath approach, in order to evaluate a CTO and plan a future intervention.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
CTO recanalization and its effects on LV function and patient outcomes has intrigued the interventional community over the last several years. Now that there is plenty of knowledge and experience on “how to treat” the lesion, another scientific
