Abstract

Vaporization of atheromas in 10 human aorta segments immersed under flowing blood in vitro were done using the EFF probe. No increase in packed cells of the flowing blood following atheroma vaporization were noted suggesting absence of post vaporization debris. No damage to the aorta underlying the vaporized atheroma was noted on light microscopy suggesting well localized vaporization process. This study suggests that EFF probe might be a safe tool for intravascular endarterectomy.
