A 73-year-old man with unstable angina was found to have a severely calcified chronic total occlusion (CTO) of the mid left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). Diagnostic coronary angiography confirmed the CTO to be complex, with a “flush” occlusion occurring in a segment associated with proximal septal and diagonal branches. Retrograde filling of the distal LAD occurred via 2 large septal perforators from the right coronary artery (RCA). Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
