High Restenosis Rate After CTO Bailout Technique Linked to Suboptimal Flow

from TCTMD

From Sept. 18: Suboptimal final angiographic flow grade is the primary driver of restenosis after subintimal tracking and reentry for chronic total occlusion recanalization, according to a retrospective study published online Aug. 26 ahead of print in Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions. The elevated restenosis rate associated with the STAR strategy makes it a second-line strategy, but as many new techniques rely on the same principle, "we believe that it is important to understand the reason" behind the worse outcomes, say Mauro Carlino, MD, of the San Raffaele Scientific Institute, and colleagues. more
