This report describes intervention on a 73-year-old female with significant left main and triple-vessel coronary artery disease. We describe the sequence of multi-vessel intervention on the left main, obtuse marginal, and left anterior descending coronary artery CTO. Success in this case depended on application of the anchor balloon technique to deliver the balloon catheter for initial dilatation after successful crossing of the CTO with the guide wire.

What we have observed in cardiovascular medicine is what I would term a “treatment paradox” both for bypass surgery and for percutaneous revascularization. Specifically, as disease burden and complexity increase, ironically, both among surgeons and as interventional cardiologists, we perform less revascularization.
