Interventional Cardiology

‚ÄčInterventional cardiology involves treating patients with disease of the heart vessels or coronary artery disease. The interventional cardiology programme is supported by 4 catheterisation laboratories, equipped with features such as biplane and monoplane flat detectors to reduce radiation exposure to patients. The catheterisation laboratories are operational round-the-clock, ensuring that ongoing heart attack patients who admit into the NHCS will receive acute angioplasty to clear up the blocked artery. This leads to improved clinical outcome and survival rates.
