TRIHMS Doctors Create History with Successful Closure of OS ASD in 30-Year-Old Woman


NAHARLAGUN | Sep | 15 

 A major milestone in the state's healthcare services was achieved when a 30-year-old woman with an Ostium Secundum Atrial Septal Defect (OS ASD) of 20 mm size underwent a successful percutaneous closure of the defect by deployment of an ASD device under local anesthesia in the newly installed Cath lab of TRIHMS.

The woman, who had been suffering from shortness of breath, had been diagnosed with an OS ASD. The percutaneous closure procedure was performed in the newly installed Cath lab of TRIHMS Cardiology by a team comprising cardiologists Dr. R. D. Megeji and Dr. Tony Ete, cath lab technicians, and cath lab nursing officers.

This is the first time that a percutaneous closure of an ASD has been performed in the state, marking a major milestone for the health services of the state.

The team is optimistic that they will be able to perform other groundbreaking and life-saving procedures in the days ahead. They are committed to providing the best possible care to a maximum number of interventional patients with cardiac conditions within the state.

The team has already completed more than 80 procedures so far, which include 13 angioplasties, five pacemakers, and diagnostic coronary angiographies.
