Abstract

The CrossBoss chronic total occlusion catheter has been developed for the treatment of coronary chronic total occlusions. We report a novel use of the CrossBoss catheter for the crossing of a superficial femoral artery chronic total occlusion in three patients after conventional guidewire techniques failed.
