Parallel Stenting for Treatment of an In-stent Chronic Total Occlusion after Successful Dissection Reentry TechniqueFunding Sources None.

Percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) for chronic total occlusions (CTO) are the most challenging type of procedure in interventional cardiology and are traditionally associated with increased complexity and reduced procedural success rates. New techniques, such as retrograde approach and dissection reentry technique, offer alternatives in case of traditional antegrade wiring failure. In this paper, we present a successful implantation of a stent parallel to other existing stent in an in-stent CTO (IS-CTO) using dissection reentry technique. The technical details involved and the clues to successful outcome in an individual with in-stent CTO are discussed.
