Abstract: In comparison with non-occlusive lesions, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTO) represents a greater challenge for the interventionalist, due to lower procedural success rates, relatively higher incidence of procedural complications and the increased rate of restenosis. The European Registry of Chronic Total Occlusion (ERCTO) was created with the goal of evaluating the real impact of CTO PCI in the European context, trying to analyse the rates of procedural success, technical information from the CTO procedures and patient outcome.
