Clinical Results of Sole Therapy TMR Treatment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The safety and efficacy of transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMR) is best demonstrated by the data collected from several multi-institutional randomized controlled trials. These trials are an important link between the preclinical data and the most common use of TMR (TMR + Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting). In addition to significant symptomatic relief both short- and long-term objective data were also garnered in these studies. A review of the history, study design, and outcomes is provided.
