A substantial number of patients present with medically refractory angina who are not candidates for angioplasty or bypass surgery. The creation of channels between the myocardium and the ventricular blood pool has been performed after thoracotomy with excellent relief of symptoms but has been associated with high perioperative mortality. We investigated the safety of a nonoperative, percutaneous technique for channel creation. Twenty-seven patients with angina and coronary anatomy not amenable… CONTINUE READING
