Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary RF wire success [ Time Frame: Assessed and measured during interventional procedure up to discharge-average hospital stay 1-5 days- defined in protocol as the number of days between interventional treatment and hospital discharge ]
    Defined as reaching the true lumen of any branch distal to the total occlusion with the sole use of the RF wire with absence of major complications (Myocardial Infarction (MI), tamponade, emergency Cornary Artery Bypass graft (CABG) or death)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Facilitated RF wire Success: Procedure Success: Clinical Success [ Time Frame: Assessed and measured during interventional procedure up to discharge-average hospital stay 1-5 days- defined in protocol as the number of days between interventional treatment and hospital discharge ]
    Facilitated RF wire success is defined as reaching the true lumen of any branch distal to the total occlusion with combined use of the RF wire and any approved mechanical guidewire with absence of major complications Procedure success defined as in-hospital device success and final residual stenosis < 30% on visual assessment, following adjunctive angioplasty, with absence of major complications Clinical success defined as device and procedure success during the concurrent hospital stay with absence of major complication

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: RF Guidewire Device: PowerAssert RF wire in crossing coronary in-stent chronic total occlusions
Radio frequency ablation of chronic total occlusions within a stent of a coronary artery using Niobe Magnetic Navigation System (MNS) and the PowerAssert Radiofrequency Guidewire
Other Names:
  • PowerAssert RF
  • Magnetic RF Wire

Detailed Description:

Determine the safety and efficacy of the Stereotaxis PowerAssert™ 18 RF Wire System:

Primary - of recanalizing (crossing) coronary total occlusions within a stent.

Secondary - facilitated angioplasty at hospital discharge represented by

  • Event free survival
  • Anginal status, and
  • Target vessel patency
  • minimal luminal diameter (MLD).
