Atherectomy (Laser)

Description

In this minimally-invasive procedure, a catheter equipped with a laser tip is used to remove plaque from an obstructed coronary artery. The coronary arteries are the arteries that provide blood to the heart muscles. Laser atherectomy is typically most appropriate for the removal of softer types of plaque.
