Background- A sizable portion of patients with angina pectoris secondary to underlying coronary artery disease (CAD) can be effectively treated. Anti-anginal medication has proven efficacious in most patients, and percutaneous coronary revascularization or coronary artery bypass grafting can successfully treat the rest. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) via its direct, heat-independent effect on the process of tissue repair may play a significant role in the treatment of patients with advanced CAD… Expand

Percutaneous myocardial laser revascularisation
TLDR
In an uncontrolled trial of TMLR in patients with refractory angina and coronary artery disease which was unsuitable for conventional revascularisation, three quarters had an improvement in symptoms of two angina classes. Expand
Laser biostimulation in end-stage multivessel coronary artery disease--a preliminary observational study.
TLDR
An improvement of functional capacity and less frequent angina symptoms during exercise tests without a significant change in the left ventricular function were observed and laser biostimulation in short-term observation was a very safe method. Expand
Intravascular laser therapy of acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Precodial ECG mapping and serial determination of blood enzyme activities showed that irradiation performed within the first hours of MI development contributed to effective limitation of the infarction area and restricted the spread of the area of myocardial ischemic damage. Expand

TLDR
Endovascular irradiation of blood with helium-neon laser was studied for effects on the time-course of the processes of ischemic lesion and myocardial necrotization and was found to contribute to a more rapid formation of a necrotic zone. Expand

Long-term effect of low energy laser irradiation on infarction and reperfusion injury in the rat heart.
TLDR
It is concluded that LELI caused a profound reduction in infarct size and LVD in the rat heart after chronic MI and caused complete reduction in ischemic-reperfused heart. Expand

TLDR
The new, innovative technique of intravascular low power laser photostimulation is a relatively inexpensive and easy to use treatment method and the results obtained are very promising. Expand

TLDR
The infarct size in the LI dogs was reduced significantly, compared with NLI dogs, and the laser treatment lowered mortality significantly, from 30% to 6.5%, after induction of MI. Expand
