Transluminal laser catheter angioplasty.


The first transluminal laser angioplasty in animals is reported herein. An Argon laser and a specialized coronary arterial catheter with a fiberoptic wave guide were used. Immediate histologic changes consisted of a moderate degree of intimal necrosis and some loss of elastic tissue. At 5 days the intima was repaired, but focal elastic tissue loss persisted.
