Lasers, Argon, Angioplasty

Definition : Argon lasers designed to deliver their energy into the vessels to eliminate areas of narrowing (i.e., angioplasty). These lasers usually consist of an argon laser generator and a delivery system that includes fiber optics and a catheter. Ablation is usually performed by direct laser ablation, but some devices ablate the thrombic tissue thermically by heating a metal cap enclosing the distal tip of a vascular catheter. Angioplasty argon lasers are mostly used in peripheral vessel treatments.
