Abstract

Laser energies can be transmitted through flexible optical fiber to vaporize and penetrate coronary atherosclerotic and thrombotic obstructions. There are risks and complications involved in this therapy, however, including perforation, aneurysm formation, and thromboembolic risks, and further research is needed to render the laser recanalization procedure safe.
