What is it about?

The prevalence of new-onset Chronic total occlusion (CTO) of native vessels is prevalent in patients with prior coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), the objective of the study is to determine predictors for new native-vessel occlusion. As to high incidence of postoperative CTO, appropriate revascularization strategies and postoperative management should be taken into careful consideration.

Why is it important?

Few data regarding the prevalence of new-onset CTOs in native arteries are available, with the relevant risk factors of new-onset CTOs remaining unclear. At present, there is a lack of relevant research on Chinese people, who are the majority of East Asians.


I hope this article makes what people might clarify more clearly the new occlusion in patients with Prior CABG, better choice of revascularization strategy, improve the prognosis of patients after CABG .
