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)
We report a case of RA-induced fistula between the diagonal branch and the accompanying vein. Thus far, the patient has had no relevant symptoms; thus, no intervention has been undertaken. We will closely monitor the patient to determine future
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
The treatment of coronary lesions caused by blunt chest trauma is controversial. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a coronary dissection related to blunt chest trauma evaluated with OCT and treated with a magnesium resorbable scaffold.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
We present a patient who underwent angioplasty of the entire length of the inferior vena cava.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of OCT evaluation of SFA atherectomy in a patient from the Asia-Pacific region. We demonstrate the feasibility of this technique in Chinese populations.
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
Right ventricle intramural hematoma is a rare complication of right coronary artery PCI. With the increased uptake and prevalence of complex chronic total occlusion interventions, unusual complications will continue to occur; sharing and raising the
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)
We present a case of a rare complication of septal collateral perforation resulting in the formation of septal hematoma that fortunately on this occasion did not result in any significant clinical deterioration, and was managed conservatively with a
Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

A dual-access approach for CTO intervention using transradial and ipsilateral transulnar access is reported. Although retrograde CTO intervention is a challenging procedure, a single arm-double access approach seems to be a feasible alternative

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

Balloon shaft fracture can be challenging to treat in the setting of retrograde CTO-PCI with guidewire externalization; withdrawal of the guide catheter may allow successful removal of the balloon shaft fragment.

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

This case highlights the value of extensive coronary collaterals in maintaining myocardial viability in severe coronary artery disease, and the role of cardiac MRI in guiding revascularization decisions.
