Abstract

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of coronary chronic total occlusions (CTO) can be challenging. Although several crossing techniques are available, in some cases their application fails to cross the occlusion. Carlino et al. have pioneered the technique of hydraulic microdissection by contrast injection through a microcatheter inserted into the lesion. We report two CTO PCI cases in which the use of the Carlino technique enabled success after other crossing strategies failed to cross the occlusion.
