Paper Abstract

A comparison between the laser angioplasty techniques preliminary expectations and verified limits with ten years of research on the laser technology and six years experience in clinical utilization is reported. Both early enthusiasm and present criticism have been found excessive because the limits of the techniques were intuitable from the beginning and on the other hand a significant clinical usefulness is verifiable in a selected group of patients.
