Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Transmyocardial revascularization is a new technique aimed to improve perfusion of the ischemic myocardium by creating transmyocardial channels with a laser. This report demonstrates that transmyocardial revascularization with a holmium laser can be performed through a thoracoscopic approach.
