The primary reason for unsuccessful angioplasty of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) is an inability to pass the guidewire through the occlusion. Optimal guiding catheter support is a prerequisite for successful angioplasty of CTO. We performed guidewire manipulation by anchoring a balloon in a side-branch vessel in order to achieve adequate guiding catheter support. With this novel anchoring technique, we successfully achieved guidewire passage through the CTO.
