About this book


A practical, highly illustrative and easy to read reference for interventional cardiologists, vascular surgeons, cardiac/endovascular catheterization laboratory personnel, interventional radiologists, technical staff, industry professionals, investigators, and researchers on peripheral arterial CTO interventions. 
Peripheral CTO lesions are present in nearly 50% of all peripheral arterial disease (PAD) endovascular interventions. There is tremendous growth in the performance and learning of peripheral arterial CTO procedures. There are several ongoing physician courses and many others that are being prepared; however, there is a significant lack of standardized selection, strategies, techniques and equipment necessary to achieve a high degree of reproducible success with low complication rates during the performance of these complex and technically challenging endovascular procedures.
The book is not an academic “tour de force” description of the topic but rather a practical one with many illustrations and step-by-step explanations of the various procedure steps, what can go wrong, and troubleshooting. Heavy use of illustrations throughout limit the text to what is necessary to convey the message, and the book is supported by online case catalogues and board review questions. The book also includes never-before-published information on new technology.

“This book seeks to help those involved in endovascular management of patients with chronic total occlusions to develop a systematic approach to the treatment of these occlusions. … The book is aimed at practitioners (vascular, cardiology, interventional radiology) who perform peripheral endovascular interventions. It is designed to instruct those who are just starting to learn endovascular skills as well as to increase the awareness of available options for those who have performed hundreds of interventions.” (Michael C. Soult, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
