Antegrade retrograde revascularization is invaluable to the interventionalist, but is commonly complicated by the two catheters/wires lying in different planes and/or lumens relative to one another. This chapter describes the “bull’s-eye” technique with use of the Outback® LTD® Re-Entry Catheter (Cordis Corp., Milpitas, CA) steered toward a specific target, most commonly a snare to connect the two accesses. Although a snare the most commonly used target, this technique has been employed using a balloon or catheter as the target for the Outback®. This technique is widely applicable for large (aortic) to small (tibial) vessel revascularizations. It has also been employed successfully with challenging chronic central and peripheral venous occlusions.
