Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMR) reduces anginal class and is indicated for severely symptomatic patients who are not candidates for conventional revascularization. This report describes a 72-year-old man who presented 4 years following initially successful TMR with recurrent angina refractory to maximal medical management. Reoperative TMR was performed with substantial improvement in angina and functional class.
