HCM CITY — The Ninh Thuận Province General Hospital yesterday opened a cardio-vascular intervention unit for specialised cardiac monitoring and procedures.

It benefited from transfer of medical techniques by the HCM City University Medical Centre as part of the Ministry of Health’s satellite hospital project in the last two years. 

In the beginning it would perform coronary interventions with technical assistance from the HCM City hospital, Thái Phương Phiên, its director, said.

It would later perform advanced procedures to bring down the rate of transfer to higher-level hospitals, he said.

Assoc Prof Trương Quang Bình, director of the city hospital’s cardiovascular centre, said doctors in the unit would be trained in minimally invasive surgical procedures to help local patients with heart diseases benefit from the latest treatment. — VNS
