Currently, recanalization of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) in peripheral arteries remains a challenging obstacle encountered by clinical practitioners. Percutaneous CTO interventions are associated with low rates of procedural success using standard guidewires and catheters. When guidewires cannot cross the occluded segment or fail to reenter the true lumen after subintimal crossing of the occlusion, successful recanalization may be unachievable. In the last few years, the emergence of novel… CONTINUE READING
