Paper Abstract

The holmium:YAG laser, a new solid-state, infrared laser system, is being used increasingly more often for treating peripheral vascular disease. We discuss the early use of this device in coronary laser angioplasty. The holmium:YAG laser has several advantages over excimer systems and may prove to be an effective adjunctive to coronary balloon angioplasty.
