ABSTRACT
The article discusses the retrograde right coronary artery (RCA) intervention procedure on a patient who bears with several months of effort angina. Retrograde RCA intervention approach is discussed, where catheters, guide wires, and angioplasty balloon were inserted. Angiography images are also presented. Moreover, the authors stated that such technique cannot be applied in all cases of chronic total occlusions, as it needs the presence of collaterals, but can be an alternative.
