Abstract

We describe herein the operative steps used to perform a transmyocardial laser revascularization by thoracoscopy. A special technique and specific equipment are required for the efficacy and safety of the procedure. Our preliminary results with this novel approach suggest that it could be a valid alternative to the thoracotomic procedure.
