Acute effects of a copper vapour laser on atheroma

Abstract

The acute histological effects of a commercially available copper vapour laser (CVL) on normal and atherosclerotic arterial wall were studied. The multi-cyclic CVL produces a quasi continuous wave output at 511 nm (green) and 578 nm (yellow) [green/yellow ratio 2∶1]. Tissue craters were produced in segments of normal and atherosclerotic human femoral artery… (More)
