Successful percutaneous coronary intervention of chronic total occlusions (CTO) is associated with favorable clinical outcomes in selected subsets of patients. The success rate of CTO interventions greatly increased over the last decades, thanks to the development of dedicated materials and interventional strategies. Nevertheless, CTO interventions are still challenging with higher complication rates and lower success rates compared to standard percutaneous coronary interventions. Dedicated CTO operators are warranted in order to minimize the rate of complications and to achieve a success rate near to 90[%]. This state of the art paper is aimed to provide updated evidences on the clinical benefit of CTO recanalization and to describe specific interventional techniques for CTO recanalization.
