[Percutaneous recanalization of the femoral artery using a laser].


The authors performed, in the period from February to May 1989 seven recanalization interventions on occlusions of femoral artery with a laser angioplasty. In six cases the dilatation of the formed primary canal was made by subsequent balloon angioplasty. In all patients the intervention was followed by a significant clinical improvement and increased doppler index. No significant clinical complications occurred during the interventions.
