Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusions (CTOs) has been rapidly evolving during recentyears. With improvement in equipment and techniques, high success rates can be achieved at experienced centers,although overall success rates remain low. Prospective, randomized-controlled data regarding optimal use andindications for CTO PCI remain limited. CTO PCI should be performed when the anticipated benefit exceeds the potentialrisk. New high-quality studies of the clinical outcomes and techniques of CTO PCI are needed, as is the expansion of expertcenters and operators that can achieve excellent clinical outcomes in this challenging patient and lesion subgroup.In the current review the authors summarize the latest publications in CTO PCI and provide an overview of thecurrent state of the field.
