Against the background of current data supporting indications for chronic total occlusion (CTO) revascularization and strategies that promote incrementally higher procedural success rates, this article introduces a multidisciplinary approach to CTO program development, establishes guidelines for the performance of safe and efficient CTO percutaneous coronary intervention, and reviews considerations related to resource utilization and economic outcomes with complex percutaneous coronary revascularization.
