Abstract

The treatment of angina has gone a long way and has taken many turns. Procedures like coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have proven themselves as viable solutions for many, but not all. A growing number of patients are unable to be treated by these methods primarily because of the diffuse nature of their disease. It is for these end-stage coronary disease patients, that transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMLR) was developed. This chapter will explore the influence of specific laser parameters on laser-tissue interactions, the results of studies involving TMLR or TMLR in conjunction with CABG, and finally will analyze the possible mechanisms of TMLR.
