Paper Abstract

The method and system's design for the laser treatment of the heart ischemia is presented. Our conceptual approach to the development of the system is based on the theoretical and experimental works about positive influence of low intensity near infrared laser irradiation by treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The method and system allow it to influence the subepicardial collateral blood circulation with near infrared (NIR) laser irradiation in wavelength ranges of 0.86 - 1.06 mkm. The presented techniques make it possible to achieve a higher effectiveness of treatment. First, due to individual choice of radiation parameters on the basis of analysis of the patient's conditions before and after laser therapy. Second, due to simultaneous influence at several points of the human body. Finally, results of the clinical tests are presented, which confirm the discussed methods.
