  • BACKGROUND Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is common, being reported in 18% to 30% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is usually performed to relieve anginal symptoms, but data are emerging to suggest that there may also be a mortality benefit. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to compare outcomes of patients with successful versus unsuccessful PCI to a CTO. METHODS We analyzed the U.K. Central Cardiac Audit Database for all CTO PCI cases carried… CONTINUE READING
