Paper Abstract

Much recent effort has been devoted toward developing clinically safe and effective laser angioplasty systems. Although it is possible to increase the luminal diameter of an artery by using laser energy to vaporize atherosclerotic plaque, these efforts have been complicated in early studies by an unacceptably high incidence of vessel perforation (Isner et al. 1972; Ginsburg et al. 1985; Deckelbaum et al. 1989).
