This is a practical handbook providing readers with a step-by-step description of how to perform some of the percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) techniques for treating chronic total occlusion (CTO) and how to troubleshoot some of the problems along the way. PCI has emerged as a very effective procedure to help patients with CTOs, with high success and low complications rates. However, it remains a very challenging procedure with multiple challenges, both in managing specific cases, but also in the learning process.
: The Hybrid Approach represents a practical book formatted to assist the busy interventional cardiologist in learning the techniques. Numerous examples are provided, with a vast selection of still images and over 150 angiographic video loops. The concept of the book is to provide a quick reference tool to help identify the most common problems encountered with instruction on the most effective method of counteracting them. It will become a “must have” for operators who want a quick reference for the procedure.
