PROGRESS-CTO: predicting coronary artery perforation during PCI

Coronary artery perforation is a known risk of a chronic total occlusion (CTO) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure. Although uncommon, it can be fatal as it can cause pericardial effusion and tamponade. Investigators sought to develop a model to identify risk factors for this complication.

We spoke with Professor Manos Brilakis about their PROGRESS CTO study where they are working on developing a perforation score for CTO PCI.
