Paper Abstract

Percutaneous coronary angioscopy was successfully performed with a steerable, balloon-tipped microangioscope in 36 of 43 patients undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. The design of the device, technique of performing angioscopy, reasons for failure to image successfully, angioscopy findings, and clinical implications will be discussed.
