"Utility of Intravascular Ultrasound in Percutaneous Revascularization of Chronic Total Occlusions: An Overview"


ABSTRACT

Intravascular ultrasound has been used for >20 years to guide percutaneous coronary intervention in different subsets of coronary lesions. During the last decade, the interest in percutaneous coronary intervention for chronic total occlusion (CTO) has increased dramatically, leading to high success...

Collateral Circulation in Chronic Total Occlusions - an interventional perspective.


ABSTRACT


Human coronary collaterals are inter-coronary communications that are believed to be present from birth. In the presence of chronic total occlusions, recruitment of flow via these collateral anastomoses to the arterial segment distal to occlusion provide an alternative source of blood flow to th...

Noninvasive Discrimination of Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion and Subtotal Occlusion by Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography.


ABSTRACT


OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate whether noninvasive discrimination of chronic total occlusion (CTO), a complete interruption of coronary artery flow, and subtotal occlusion (STO), a functional total occlusion, is feasible using coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA)....

Usefulness of the parameters of quantitative myocardial perfusion contrast echocardiography in patients with chronic total occlusion and collateral flow.


ABSTRACT


BACKGROUND: Microvascular obstruction becomes more severe with longer duration of ischemia, such as chronic total occlusion (CTO) which used to have collateral flow. In this study, we explored the correlation between parameters measured using quantitative myocardial perfusion contrast echocardio...

Extracellular volume fraction in coronary chronic total occlusion patients.


ABSTRACT


To assess extracellular volume fraction (ECV) and regional systolic function in patients presenting with coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) in areas without significant late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), and (2) to investigate the correlation between angiography collateral flow and ECV in te...
