Techniques for Crossing with a Chronic Total Occlusion Device

Dr. James Park successfully crosses a >20cm CTO utilizing the TruePath CTO Device, guidewires, and a support catheter. During the case, Dr. Park demonstrates how he identifies the lumen of the occlusion; how creating a 15 degree angle on the tip of TruePath can help steer the device while advancing through a total occlusion; and how he uses audio/visual feedback from TruePath to help confirm that he is within the true lumen.
