Abstract

Percutaneous revascularization of chronic total occlusion (CTO) of coronary vessels represents a major challenge for contemporary interventional cardiologists. In the last decade there has been an unprecedented effort towards the standardization of revascularization procedures for CTO of coronary vessels. This endeavour has been possible by virtue of the growing interest of various cardiological societies for this patient group. Along with supportive endovascular technologies and percutaneous devices specifically dedicated to this interventional target, the increasing experience of interventionalists enabled continuously growing success for revascularization of CTO of coronary vessels. This review article highlights the currently available tools as well as technologies, techniques and strategies for the percutaneous recanalization of CTO of coronary vessels.
