Clinical trials for Argon Laser angioplasty of patients with severe ischemia of the lower extremities are presented. All instances were limited to those in whom no conventional reconstructive operation was ideal. Laser angioplasty proved to be beneficial when used in conjunction with standard vascular surgical procedures under appropriate conditions. The short term evaluation was favorable; however, a long term study must be followed and completed prior to routine use of laser angioplasty.
