    What is TMR?

    Transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) is a clinically proven laser therapy procedure for chronic angina patients whose angina has been resistant to other medical treatments.


    From pain to relief, patients are moving from class IV angina to class II or I. The results are clinically significant as a growing number of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons are seeing these life-changing effects.


    • 67-75% reduction in chronic pain associated with angina
    • Longer-term, event-free survival
    • Reduced readmission
    • Improved quality of life
