Triple-Access Retrograde CTO Treatment Via Vein Graft and Epicardial Collaterals


Video Supplement to “Triple-Access Retrograde Chronic Total Occlusion Intervention Through Vein Graft and Epicardial Collaterals,” by Tsiafoutis, et al. (June 2020 Clinical Images).

Subsequently, an antegrade approach successfully crossed the CTO using the “just marker” technique. Finally, three drug-eluting stents were implanted with good angiographic result, which is demonstrated herein.
