Overview

Through the case experience of an international faculty of CTO PCI experts, the emerging understanding of the everyday efficiency of the unique ReCross dual OTW lumen microcatheter is demonstrated.

 

The experts consider their personal CTO PCI algorithms, and how they believe ReCross’s versatility allows the device to contribute to antegrade success in the widely recognised EuroCTO Club and Hybrid algorithms respectively. 

This programme is supported by:

Key Learning Objectives
