Neodymium--Yag laser in the recanalization of arterial occlusions



Neodymium--Yag laser in the recanalization of arterial occlusions



Acta Medica Portuguesa 5(7): 397-399



Failure of the guide-wire to recanalize some arterial total occlusion does not preclude balloon angioplasty. Nowadays there are recanalization devices such as the mechanical atherectomy and Lasers. The following report describes the successful use of the Nd: YG Laser in the recanalization of a common iliac artery total occlusion in a patient with claudication, rendering possible balloon angioplasty and a Palmaz Stent implantation, which is the first case performed in our country.
