About these proceedings


TMLR is becoming a very popular indirect method of revascularization which will probably become yet another accepted technique for treating coronary artery disease. The articles included in this publication have all been written by experts and not only describe the technique itself but also give the first comprehensive survey on the pathological, physiological, laser technological and surgical basis necessary to understand this approach. Physicians who treat patients with coronary artery disease will find this volume most useful in their work.
