CTOs are very common, occurring in as many as 30% of patients with significant coronary artery disease.
CABG vs PCI
Patients with CTOs are most often treated with medical therapy or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) rather than PCI.
Recent meta-analyses and large registries have shown that successful CTO PCI is associated with symptom relief, a reduction in long-term mortality, and a lower need for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
