Cardiology | Cardiovascular Diseases | Internal Medicine
Chronic total occlusion is defined as the complete obstruction of a coronary artery, with TIMI 0 or TIMI 1 flow, and an occlusion duration of greater than 3 months. We present a case of symptomatic chronic total occlusion in a functional 79 year old female with no past history of coronary artery disease, previously asymptomatic due to robust collateral circulation.
