The study was designed to analyse results of alternative methods of myocardial revascularization in "no-option patients" to whom direct revascularization is not indicated. Over 600 cases were treated with the use of transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMLR), angiogenic factors (VEGF, alpha-ECGF), and cellular therapy. It was shown that TMLR is a safe and efficacious procedure increasing perfusion and normalizing myocardial metabolism. It eliminates angina and improves quality of life of… CONTINUE READING
