Different strategies of retrograde approach were introduced in recent years to improve the success rate of percutaneous coronary intervention for coronary chronic total occlusions. The aim of this report is to describe a new technique, called "Trap and Occlude Technique," for retrograde wire externalization during CTO percutaneous revascularization. This technique may save time and reduce radiation exposure and procedure-related bleeding.
