Despite significant advances in procedural techniques for revascularization of chronic total occlusions (CTO), comprehensive procedural planning and accurate prediction of procedural success remain the Achilles’ heels of CTO percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Understanding the unique anatomic characteristics of CTOs that may predict relative success and complication rates of revascularization is imperative. Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) has evolved as an adjunct to invasive angiography to better characterize CTO lesions to improve success rates of CTO PCI.
