Paper Abstract

To date, 1201 symptomatic patients with significant coronary artery disease were treated with the mid IR holmium:YAG (2.1 micron) laser in a multicenter study. Updated results of this study, as presented herein, substantiate the important role of this laser in treatment of lesions not ideal for conventional balloon angioplasty. This device is a safe and effective means of coronary revascularization.
