Collateral Vessel Opacification on CTA Correlates With Extent of Downstream MI

Objective: To evaluate the filling pattern of distal coronary vessels in patients with chronic total occlusion (CTO) and to correlate that with the extent of downstream myocardial infarction (MI). Design: Prospective study. Participants/Methods: 97 patients who were scheduled to undergo percutaneous coronary intervention due to CTO that had been previously confirmed with invasive coronary angiography were included.
