Paper Abstract

A complex examination of results of UV laser action on normal and atherosclerotic wall has been undertaken. A considerable part of laser energy absorbed in tissue specimen was shown to be exhausted for photodissociation of lipid molecules. Moreover, substantial changes in molecular structure of amino acid and glucose have been demonstrated.
