Serbia and Siberia share their most educational cases: CTO PCI: teaching points from challenging cases in everyday practice

With the collaboration of the Serbian Working Group on Catheterisation and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention and the Siberian Association of Interventional Cardioangiologists

Chairpersons: V. Ganyukov, S. Stojkovic

Learning Objectives

  • To understand how improvements in strategical approach and operator technique improve success rates for CTO
  • To describe advanced techniques and adjunctive devices for CTO recanalisation
  • To integrate the latest CTO PCI indications and procedural success optimisation, while minimising complications

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Case 1: multiple CTOs recanalisation in ACS supported by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
  • Case 2: reverse CART via an epicardial collateral channel
  • Case 3: correction suboptimal results recanalisation of CTO using invasive coronary imaging
  • Case 4: Kugel's artery as a pathway for R-CART recanalisation
  • Case 5: retrograde CTO recanalisation of LAD through a restenotic left anterior descending artery stent
  • Case 6: tandem left main stem and left anterior descending CTOs recanalisation in one antegrade session
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
