“Device-based antegrade dissection re-entry versus parallel wire techniques for the percutaneous revascularization of coronary chronic total occlusions.”
Qin, Qing et al.

Abstract

Background:Device-based antegrade dissection re-entry (ADR) and parallel wire technique (PWT) are two important techniques in the antegrade approach in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusion (CTO). The study is aimed to compare the procedural and mid-term outcomes b...

“Prevalence and outcomes of balloon undilatable chronic total occlusions: Insights from the PROGRESS-CTO.”
Simsek, Bahadir et al.

Abstract


Background
The prevalence, treatment, and outcomes of balloon undilatable lesions encountered in chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have received limited study.

  CTO Techniques   25/04/2022
“Femoral or Radial Approach in Treatment of Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion: A Randomized Clinical Trial.”
Gorgulu, Sevket et al.

Abstract


Objectives
The aim of this study was to compare transradial access (TRA) with transfemoral access (TFA) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).


Background
TRA reduces the risk for vascular access complicat...






“Retrograde Chronic Total Occlusion Percutaneous Coronary Interventions: Predictors of Procedural Success From the ERCTO Registry.”
Myat, Aung et al.

Abstract


Objectives
The aim of this study was to identify independent predictors of procedural success after retrograde chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).


Background
Retrograde CTO PCI is an established technique, but predi...

  CTO Techniques   21/04/2022
“Guide-Extension Carlino: A novel technique for crossing a microcatheter uncrossable proximal cap during chronic total occlusion interventions.”
Karacsonyi, Judit et al.

Abstract

Balloon and microcatheter uncrossable chronic total occlusions can be challenging to treat. We present a novel technique for treating such lesions through contrast injection via a guide catheter extension wedged against the proximal cap. We named this technique “guide-extension Carlino.&r...
