Chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary interventions can be highly complex and are associated with an increased risk of complications, such as perforation, acute vessel closure (which can lead to rapid haemodynamic compromise if it involves the donor vessel), and equipment loss or entrapment. Awareness of the potential complications and meticulous attention to equipment position and patient monitoring can help minimise the risk of complications and allow prompt treatment should they occur.
