Laser angioplasty with angioscopic guidance in humans.


An experimental study was conducted in 11 patients to evaluate the immediate effects of laser recanalization during peripheral arterial bypass surgery. Angioscopy allowed precise localization and identification of the occlusion. A 1 or 2 mm optical fiber probe was used. Laser energy was regulated using the least amount of energy necessary for recanalization… (More)
