Recanalization of chronic total occlusions via grafts has been described previously. However, the insertion of the graft into the distal vessel is often characterized by an unfavorable entry angle which renders an antegrade approach challenging. In the present case, we describe how retrograde recanalization of the proximal right coronary artery via a right internal mammary artery graft facilitated antegrade revascularization of the chronic total occlusion of the right coronary artery. © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
