Vascular applications of laser.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The authors review the current experimental and clinical literature relating to the use of lasers in peripheral vascular disease. During the past few years, significant strides have been made in effective harnessing of laser energy for percutaneous revascularization. However, the role of lasers in treating vascular disease is not yet clear. Thus current application of laser technology in this area should be considered experimental until adequate clinical studies confirm its efficacy.
