Dubai cardiologist to live webcast procedures
Dubai, May 26, 2010
A specialist cardiologist from Dubai Hospital will perform two of the most critical cardiac procedures live through a webcast to a medical congress in France.
Dr Talib K Majwal, director of interventional cardiology at Dubai Heart Center, Dubai Hospital, is participating in the EuroPCR Congress ‘live centre’ session in Paris.
He will perform the cases today (May 26) on the latest state of the art Philips Allura Xper FD 10/10 catherization lab system, equipped with interventional tools, a statement said.
“We have a very high and consistent success rate, and now, we are the only centre outside Europe that has been selected to be a part of the live case sessions at EuroPCR,” said Dr Majwal.
“Majority of our cases are urgent and usually need immediate open heart surgery, but our centre offers angioplasty, a much less invasive procedure – with the patient going back to normal life within two to three days of the procedure,” he added.
Diederik Zeven, senior director and general manager of Philips Healthcare in the Middle East said: “The Philips Allura Xper FD 10/10 cathlab system will enable doctors to treat patients faster and safer, as well as improve clinical outcomes.”
The live transmission of the first procedure labeled the ‘Unprotected Left Main’ will be aired live to the main arena of the EuroPCR live centre from Room One at Dubai Hospital.
The next procedure titled ‘Complex Patient’ will be aired at the plenary room during the learning and techniques session on bifurcation, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
