Abstract

The thermal conduction from the sapphire probe can be significantly enhanced by increasing flows of CO2 gas perfusion. This may play an important role in creating a greater diameter of the recanalized channel and in better delaying the formation of restenosis or re-occlusion after laser recanalization of atheromatous arteries.
