Currently, successful treatment of chronic total occlusion (CTO) seems markedly improved, due to several new techniques and dedicated device developments. However, this improved success rate is often limited to procedures performed by skilled, highly experienced operators. To improve the overall success rate of percutaneous coronary intervention of CTO from a worldwide perspective, a deeper understanding of CTO histopathology might offer insights into the development of new techniques and… CONTINUE READING
