Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is one of the most challenging coronary lesions to be faced in the catheterization laboratory. This report of a patient with stable angina and a CTO illustrates the potential problems that may arise and must be overcome, and demonstrates the utilization of technologies including the Intraluminal wire.
