Objectives
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.
