Abstract

A meta-analysis of 7 randomized trials involving 1,053 patients was performed to evaluate the effect of transmyocardial laser revascularization as the sole procedural intervention on survival and angina relief. At 1 year, transmyocardial laser revascularization produced a significant improvement in angina class (p <0.0001) but no improvement in survival (p = 0.75).
