The use of saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) for retrograde native-vessel chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has received limited study.
Inability to cross the occlusion with a guidewire is the most common cause of failure of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) interventions. We describe two cases of successful application of the no...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of automated plaque analysis in differentiating chronic total occlusion (CTO) from subtotal occlusion (SO) in patients with ambiguous coronary lesions...
Successful recanalization of chronic total occlusion (CTO) of coronary arteries has improved symptoms and mortality. In CTO cases, retrograde approach from opposite coronary artery has a better chance...
The hypothesis of this study is that coronary angioplasty with stenting of right coronary artery (RCA) chronic total occlusion (CTO) improves myocardium perfusion. Thus a stress-MRI is a m...
Under the circumstances that appropriate first-choice guidewires for percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) have yet to be established, the objective of...
The investigators studied the effect of CTO-PCI on left ventricular function and clinical parameters in patients with HFrEF.
The CiTop™ guidewire Coronary study is a feasibility open label study, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the CiTop™ Guidewire for crossing chronic total occlusion in Coronary arte...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of drug-eluting stent implantation compared to optimal medical treatment in patients with chronic total occlusion.
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.
A chronic inflammatory process that affects the AORTA and its primary branches, such as the brachiocephalic artery (BRACHIOCEPHALIC TRUNK) and CAROTID ARTERIES. It results in progressive arterial stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm formation. The pulse in the arm is hard to detect. Patients with aortitis syndrome often exhibit retinopathy.
Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
