We report two cases of flush chronic total occlusion due to in-stent restenosis, in which percutaneous coronary intervention attempts via over-the-wire balloons and microcatheters failed to cross the lesion. Using the Venture® catheter for support and the Stingray® guidewire for enhanced penetration capacity, both lesions were successfully crossed and stented.
