Valley Heart & Vascular Institute - Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization

Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR)

Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR) is available at The Valley Hospital for patients with diffusely diseased coronary arteries that are not suitable for conventional coronary surgery.

TMR is also used in conjunction with conventional surgery in areas of the heart where the coronary arteries are small or too diseased to accept a bypass.

While TMR has not been shown to prolong life, it helps to control angina, reduces re-admissions to the hospital, and can be a solution for patients with disabling angina who cannot be revascularized.

For more information, please call 201-447-8456.
