This report discusses a new indication for the use of holmium:YAG laser. It includes facilitation of thrombolysis and plaque ablation in acute myocardial infarction after failure of thrombolytic agents. Further study is required to define optimal utilization and integration of this novel device for patients who fail to respond to thrombolytic agents.
