Lumen enlargement of the coronary segments located distal to chronic total occlusions successfully treated with drug-eluting stents at follow-up.

EuroIntervention. 2014 Feb;9(10):1181-8, PMID: 24561735

Chronic total occlusions (CTO) are the final stage of atherosclerosis. Occluded coronary arteries have large plaque burden and negative remodelling. The aim of this study was to assess lumen and vessel changes of segments located distal to successfully recanalised CTO.
