Authors: Jie Dong, Xiaoyan Wang

Abstract

Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is a formidable challenge for interventionists. To overcome this challenge and provide practical information on CTO intervention, the 2018 CTO Cases Competition was held. This competition offered a great platform for contestants to make extensive discussions and exchanges on CTO treatment solutions and strategies, bringing about much better impacts on CTO treatment than the initial expectation.
