Paper Abstract

The method and design of a system for the laser treatment of ischemic heart disease is presented. Our conceptual approach to the development of the system is based on the theoretical and experimental works of the east and west scientists about positive influence of low intensity laser irradiation in the near infrared range by treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The method and system allow active influence on the subepicardial collateral blood circulation with near infrared (NIR) laser irradiation in wavelength ranges of 0.86-1.06 mkm. The presented technique makes it possible to achieve a higher effectiveness of treatment due to individual choice of radiation parameters on the basis of analysis of the patient conditions before and after laser therapy and due to simultaneous affection at several points of the human body. Finally, results of the tests are presented, which prove given methods.
