  Coronary Chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are detected in 15 - 25% of patients undergoing coronary angiography [1]. Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCIs) of CTOs present some of the most complex subsets for interventional cardiologist. In the last years the success rate of CTO-PCIs has rapidly improved, not only because of the evolution in materials (e.g. microcatheters, dedicated guidewires) and techniques (including retrograde approaches and sub-intimal strategies) but also thanks to the development of dedicated programs and shared strategies for operators approaching these very complex procedures.
