Antegrade, Retrograde, and Combination Strategies for Chronic Total Occlusions.

Summary of "Antegrade, Retrograde, and Combination Strategies for Chronic Total Occlusions."

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) represents one of the most challenging lesion subsets faced by the interventional cardiologist. CTO is a common problem, being present in more than 30% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. Over the past 10 years, the success rate of recanalization has increased from approximately 50-85%. Developments in guidewire technology, imaging technique, and coronary devices have contributed to the improved prognosis of patients affected by a CTO lesion. Enhancement in antegrade and retrograde techniques of recanalization also result in improved outcomes. Benefits of CTO recanalization may include symptom relief, decreased need for coronary artery bypass graft surgery, improved left ventricular ejection fraction, and in some cases an improved survival.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in a blood vessel within the SKULL. Intracranial thrombosis can lead to thrombotic occlusions and BRAIN INFARCTION. The majority of the thrombotic occlusions are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.

Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
