    Intravascular Healing Is Not Affected by Approaches in Contemporary CTO PCI: The CONSISTENT CTO Study

    Objectives The aim of this study was to assess angiographic, imaging, and clinical outcomes following chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with dissection and re-entry techniques (DART) and subintimal (SI) stenting compared with intimal techniques. Background Reliable procedural success and safety in CTO PCI require the use of DART to treat the most complex patients. Potential concerns regarding the durability of DART with SI stenting still need to be addressed. Methods This was a prospective, multicenter, single-arm trial of patients with appropriate indications for CTO PCI. Results Successful CTO PCI was performed in 210 of 231 patients (91 ...
