The uptake of CTO-PCI and the use of the hybrid approach have increased widely; this has resulted in a new set of complications, some of which are unusual, particularly with the retrograde approach. We present a case of a rare complication of septal collateral perforation resulting in the formation of septal hematoma that fortunately on this occasion did not result in any significant clinical deterioration, and was managed conservatively with a successful outcome. However, on other occasions, the outcome can be more serious.
