To confirm the hypothesis that Transmyocardial Revascularisation with CO2 laser can effectively and safely treat patients with coronary artery disease and angina who have no other options for interventional therapy; to determine whether the relief of angina is due to increase in the perfusion in the ischemic areas of the myocardium which had channels created by the procedure; to determine whether there is improvement of left ventricle function.
