                                  ARTICLE VIII

                         TERMINATION, INDEMNITY AND OFFSETS
                                          
     8.1    TERMINATION BY BAXTER.  Baxter shall have the right at any time, in
its sole discretion and without payment or penalty of any kind, to terminate
this Agreement, but only provided it concurrently terminates both the License
Agreement and the Manufacturing Agreement, and any obligations hereunder and
thereunder, provided five (5) days prior written notice is given to AccuLase.

     8.2    INDEMNITY AND OFFSET.  

     (a)  Subject to the provisions of Section 8.2 (b),  AccuLase agrees to
defend and hold Baxter harmless from and against any cost, expense, claim, cause
of action (whether actual or threatened) or any other liability resulting from
the Intellectual Property or Licensed Products (as such term is defined in the
License Agreement) infringing any third party patent or other intellectual
property claim or right relating to lasers (a "Claim"), provided that Baxter
promptly notifies AccuLase of any such Claim of which it is aware,

reasonably assists AccuLase (at AccuLase's expense) in defending such Claim, and
provides AccuLase with the opportunity to assume sole control over any 
litigation and/or settlement relating to such Claim.  In any such Claim, Baxter
may retain its own counsel (at Baxter's expense ) to assist in the defense of
any such Claim and to counsel Baxter with respect to its strategy in such Claim.

     (b)  For the purposes of Sections 8.2 (a) and 8.2 (c) only, and consistent
with the parties' desires that Claims which relate specifically to
transmyocardial laser revascularization shall be borne seventy-five percent
(75%) by Baxter and twenty-five  percent (25%) by AccuLase, the parties agree
that (i) a Claim which relates specifically to transmyocardial laser
revascularization shall be borne seventy-five percent (75%) by Baxter and
twenty-five percent (25%) by AccuLase, and (ii) Baxter shall have the
opportunity to assume sole control over any litigation and/or settlement
relating to such Claim notwithstanding any contrary provision in Section 8.2 (a)
hereof.

     (c)  Baxter may withhold from, reserve against and/or offset against any
and all amounts due or to become due (or estimated to be due or to become due)
to AccuLase whether pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or otherwise, any
and all amounts as may be reasonably necessary or expected to be incurred by
Baxter in connection with the full and final resolution of any Claim.
                                          
                                     ARTICLE IX

     9.2    INTERPRETATION.  When a reference is made in this Agreement to
Exhibits, such reference shall be to an Exhibit to this Agreement unless
otherwise indicated.  The words "include, " "includes" and "including" when used
herein shall be deemed in each case to be followed by the words, "without
limitation."  The phrase "made available" in this Agreement shall mean that the
information referred to has been made available if requested by the party to
whom such information is to be made available.  The phrases "the date of this
Agreement", "the date hereof", and terms of similar import, unless the context
otherwise requires, shall be deemed to refer to date of Closing.  The headings
contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not affect
in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

     9.3    COUNTERPARTS.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more
counterparts, all of which shall be considered one and the same Agreement and
shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of
the parties and delivered to the other parties, it being understood that all
parties need not sign the same counterpart.

     9.4    ENTIRE AGREEMENT; NONASSIGNABILITY; PARTIES IN INTEREST.  This
Agreement and the documents and instruments and other Agreements specifically
referred to herein or delivered pursuant hereto, including the  Exhibits and the
Schedules:

      (a)   Constitute the entire agreement among the parties with respect to
the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings,
both written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter
hereof, except for the Confidentiality Agreement, which shall continue in full
force and effect, and shall survive any termination of this Agreement or the
Closing, in accordance with its terms; 

     (b)  Are not intended to confer upon any other person any rights or
remedies hereunder, except as set forth in Section 2.6 (c); and

     (c)  Shall not be assigned by operation of law or otherwise except as
otherwise specifically provided; however, Baxter may assign its rights or
delegate its duties hereunder to its affiliates, or in connection with a
transfer of substantially all of its transmyocardial laser business.

     9.5    SEVERABILITY.  In the event that any provision of this Agreement, or
the application thereof, becomes or is declared by a court of competent
jurisdiction to be illegal, void or unenforceable, the remainder of this
Agreement will continue in full force and effect and the application of such
provision to other persons or circumstances will be interpreted so as reasonably
to effect the intent of the parties hereto.  The parties further agree to
replace such void or unenforceable provision of this Agreement with a valid and
enforceable provision that will achieve, to the extent possible, the economic,
business and other purposes of such void or unenforceable provision.

     9.6    AMENDMENT.  This Agreement may not be altered or amended except by
writing signed by the parties hereto.

     9.7    REMEDIES CUMULATIVE.  Except as otherwise provided herein, any and
all remedies herein expressly conferred upon a party will be deemed cumulative
with and not exclusive of any other remedy conferred hereby, or by law or equity
upon such party, and the exercise by a part of any one remedy will not preclude
the exercise of any other remedy.

     9.8    GOVERNING LAW.  This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of the State of California (without regard to its
principles of conflicts of law).

     9.9    RULES OF CONSTRUCTION.  The parties hereto agree that they have been
represented by counsel during the negotiation, preparation and execution of this
Agreement and, therefore, waive the application of any law, regulation, holding
or rule of construction providing that ambiguities in an agreement or other
document will be construed against the party drafting such agreement or
document.

     9.10   SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.  The representations and
warranties contained in this Agreement shall survive for three (3) years
following the Closing.

     9.11   EXPENSES.  All costs and expenses incurred in connection with this
Agreement and the transactions contemplated by this Agreement will be paid by
the party incurring such expenses.

     9.12   ATTORNEYS' FEES.  In the event of any dispute arising under the
terms of this Agreement (including the breach thereof), the prevailing party in
such action shall be entitled to recover its attorneys' fees and costs in
addition to such other relief as may be awarded by a court or by an arbitrator.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Baxter and AccuLase have caused this Agreement to be
