Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The guided-STAR technique is an alternative anterograde approach for treatment of coronary chronic total occlusion (CTO) and it is usually followed by implantation of multiple stents. We describe a case of residual long coronary dissection left unstented after guided-STAR, with good results at 2. months follow-up. This case emphasizes the fact that sometimes even the longest coronary dissections can be left unstented especially in the contest of a CTO.
