About this book


This book equips readers with the knowledge required in order to successfully treat coronary chronic total occlusion by means of percutaneous coronary interventions. All the essential background knowledge is provided, including with regard to procedurally relevant histopathology, assessment of chronic total occlusion by means of angiography and computed tomography, patient preparation, and selection and use of guidewires. Both basic and advanced techniques employing antegrade and retrograde approaches are then described in detail with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations that ensure ease of understanding. Helpful tips and tricks are highlighted, and guidance provided on the troubleshooting of problems and the prevention and management of complications. The book will serve as a superb guide for all who are involved in percutaneous coronary interventions for chronic total occlusion, including interventional cardiologists, fellows in training, nurses, and technicians in catheterization laboratories.
