The objective in endovascular treatment of PAD is the restoration of patency and blood flow in stenosed or occluded arterial segments, in such a way that restenosis or reocclusion can be avoided along with the need for reinterventions to correct for the failure of primary patency.
"Chasing wire" indicates pushing the antegrade guidewire and pulling the retrograde guidewire simultaneously to let the antegrade guidewire track the route made by the retrograde guidewire before reocclusion. These techniques result in antegrade CTO crossing.

It is a well-known fact and is being recognised by most emerging sinus surgeons that microdebrider provides bloodless surgical field, decreases intra-operative time and is associated with lesser crusting, synechiae and ostial reocclusion. (9) However, evidence of long-term benefits by using microdebrider is lacking or is not of sufficient stature.
