Abstract

A retrograde approach through the collateral channels was recently proposed as one of the most promising current techniques for percutaneous coronary intervention of chronic total occlusion in coronary arteries (CTO). This report describes the case of a 68-year-old man in whom CTO was successfully crossed with a wire by the retrograde approach using septal collateral, but the patient suffered from a complication with septal myocardial infarction demonstrated by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
