Paper Abstract

Silver halide AgClxBr1-x fibers were inserted into cardiological catheters to form CO2 laser catheters. Human arteries which had been blocked by atherosclerotic plaque were transplanted into dogs. The laser catheter was used to recanalize the blocked arteries in an in vivo experiment.
