Outcomes, Patient Health Status, and Efficiencies in Chronic Total Occlusion (Open CTO)

The goal of this registry study is to learn more about how patients feel a year after undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention procedure (or PCI) for chronic total occlusion, a blockage in the heart vessel that is often referred to as “CTO.”

The study will be coordinated and sponsored by Saint Luke’s Hospital Mid-America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Missouri. A total of 1,000 patients nationwide will be enrolled in the registry. During the study, we will interview the patients throughout their hospital stay and document any observations.

Alexian Brothers Medical Center and the Chicago Cardiology Institute will be participating in this research/registry.
