Abstract

The retrograde approach has increased the success rate of chronic total occlusion percutaneous coronary intervention but has also been associated with a higher risk of complications. The retrograde approach is usually performed in complex lesions, in which the antegrade approach is not feasible or has failed previously. Using a systematic 10-step approach can maximize the likelihood of success and minimize the risks of retrograde chronic total occlusion interventions.
