Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for coronary artery chronic total occlusion (CTO) is an important treatment to be used in conjunction with non-CTO PCI, coronary artery bypass grafting, and optimal medical therapy to achieve complete revascularization in patients with coronary artery disease.

Chronic total occlusion continues to be a challenging lesion subset for percutaneous coronary intervention.
A 67-year-old man with coronary artery disease and previous coronary underwent successful Guideliner reverse CART percutaneous coronary intervention of a chronic total occlusion of the right coronary ...
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) has undergone impressive progress during the last decade, both in strategies and equipment. It is unknown whether technical r...
It has been estimated that coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) is encountered in 15 to 20% patients referred for coronary angiography (CAG). The success of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) ...
The plasma-derived atherogenic index (AIP) is associated with an increasing risk for cardiovascular diseases. Whether an increased AIP may predict the complexity of percutaneous coronary intervention ...
The aim of this study is to investigate the role of functional evaluation for predicting clinical outcome in patients with coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) undergoing percutaneous co...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on cardiac function in multi-vessel disease patients with concurrent chronic total occlus...
Chronic total occlusions (CTO) are encountered in almost one-fourth of patients undergoing coronary angiography. The presence of an untreated CTO has been related to adverse clinical progn...
Randomized registry for the study of CTO PCI as adjunction to optimal medical therapy.
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...
Complete blockage of blood flow through one of the CORONARY ARTERIES, usually from CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
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.
The application of industrial management practice to systematically maintain and improve organization-wide performance. Effectiveness and success are determined and assessed by quantitative quality measures.
