Abstract

A 51-year-old female two years after CABG presented with unstable angina and inferior wall ischaemia. Coronary angiography revealed occluded graft to RCA and chronic total occlusion of RCA with good collateral flow from distal LAD to RCA. The CTO was successfully crossed and dilated through epicardial collaterals from distal LAD (retrograde approach). Finally, antegrade angioplasty with two stents implantation was performed achieving TIMI 3 flow.
