Usefulness of intravascular ultrasound guidance in percutaneous coronary intervention with second-generation drug-eluting stents for chronic total occlusions (from the Multicenter Korean-Chronic Total

Abstract
Despite the usefulness of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the impact of IVUS guidance on clinical outcomes, particularly for chronic total occlusion (CTO) intervention, has rarely been studied. We sought to investigate the clinical usefulness of IVUS-guid...

Antegrade rewiring of the retrograde Corsair catheter during revascularization of chronic total coronary occlusions: a simple alternative to guidewire exteriorization.

Abstract
Chronic total occlusions prevent a significant challenge to interventional cardiologists. Successful opening of chronically occluded vessels has been shown to be associated with decreased mortality and morbidity. Recently, the retrograde approach to chronic total occlusion intervention has been deve...

Distal side-branch technique: a new use for the Tornus® Catheter.

Abstract

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) outcomes of chronic total occlusions (CTO) lesions have improved in recent years due to a better understanding of the physiopathology of the disease, more effective techniques and improvement in the design of new devices. We describe a new use of the To...

The relationship between the contralateral collateral supply and myocardial viability on cardiovascular magnetic resonance: can the angiogram predict functional recovery?

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
A collateral circulation which supplies a myocardial territory, subtended by a chronic total occlusion (CTO), may be observed at invasive coronary angiography. The prognostic and protective role of such collateralisation is well demonstrated suggesting that a good collateral circula...

Percutaneous intervention of circumflex chronic total occlusions is associated with worse procedural outcomes: insights from a Multicentre US Registry.
Percutaneous intervention of circumflex chronic total occlusions is associated with worse procedural outcomes: insights from a Multicentre US Registry

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
We sought to determine whether outcomes of chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) vary according to CTO target vessel: left anterior descending artery (LAD), left circumflex artery (LCX), and right coronary artery (RCA).
METHODS:
We evaluate...








13/01/2016
The efficacy and safety of the "hybrid" approach to coronary chronic total occlusions: insights from a contemporary multicenter US registry and comparison with prior studies.

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) is challenging and has been associated with low success rates. However, recent advancements in equipment and the flexibility to switch between multiple technical approaches during the same procedure ("hy...
