Dr. Amir Kaki Featured in Roxwood Medical Newsletter


As our first Case of the Month for 2016, we are pleased to feature a case recently completed by Dr. Cindy Grines and Dr. Amir Kaki of Detroit Medical Center.

Case Presentation

A 53-year old male showed symptoms of continued class 3 chest pain and positive stress test with a diagnostic angiography that showed an RCA with chronic total occlusion. Angiography revealed a mid-RCA 100% occlusion with TIMI 0 flow with no retrograde collateral filling.

“The anchored backup of CenterCross coupled with the support and trackability of Micro14 provide significantly greater control when treating complex CTO lesions. These devices have become a core part of our CTO toolkit since they were introduced last year.”


 — Dr. Amir Kaki

The CenterCross and Micro14 catheters were used in tandem to provide support to successfully access and cross the RCA total occlusion using a Pilot 200 guidewire. This was followed by a 0.9mm laser (Spectranetics) over an Ironman guidewire to open up a channel, followed by two overlapping 2.5mm x 38mm Xience stents (Abbott) from distal to mid-RCA. Final angiography showed a reduction of stenosis from 100% to 0% to fully restore flow to the RCA.
