    Outcome After Crossing Femoropopliteal Chronic Total Occlusions Based on Optical Coherence Tomography Guidance

    Aims: The crossing of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) is the key step for an endovascular treatment. The Ocelot system is a novel device that combines a steerable drilling tip with optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology. It provides intraluminal imaging to help the crossing of CTOs in the femoropopliteal segment. Aim of the study was to determine early and midterm results after recanalization with this device. Methods and Results: During a period of 16 months, 84 CTOs were treated using the Ocelot system and prospectively registered. The primary end points were technical success and the primary and secondary patency of the ...
