Pantai Hospital Ayer Keroh
August 18, 2011
The Cath Lab at Pantai Hospital Ayer Keroh specialises in evaluating and treating coronary artery disease. We aim to ensure that patients who are admitted with heart problems receive the optimum care and attention they deserve.
The services that we provide are:
- Coronary angioplasty: Balloon/Stent
- Insertion of temporary pacemaker
- Implantation of permanent pacemaker
Angioplasty is a procedure introducing a balloon, mounted on a catheter, into a narrowed blood vessel, stretching the walls of the vessel to restore normal blood flow.
Stents are small, flexible tubes that look like wire mesh. They are implanted in the vessel to hold the walls of the vessel open.
Kindly refer to the article on Coronary Angiogram & Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) in our Doctor’s Write Up section for more detailed information.
