Abstract

Application of lasers to vaporize coronary atherosclerotic obstruction was initially described in 1981.1 Since then, the technique has been applied clinically to coronary arteries on an experimental basis.2 This report objectively describes successful long-term laser recanalization using a catheter containing a laser-heated metal cap3 in a patient with severe end-stage peripheral vascular disease.
