Recanalisation of chronic total occlusion (CTO) is still a challenge in invasive cardiology, requiring operator experience, equipment, and techniques dedicated to CTO. Due to difficulties in crossing the lesion by wire and by balloon (both responsible for 98% of the procedure’s failures), many helpful techniques have been described. We report the case of both Tornus system and anchor technique in successful recanalisation of a right coronary artery.
