Vijayawada: Since recent past there was a major confusion among patients suffering from heart diseases about surgical stents. However, after the FFR and IFR diagnoses it has become easy to identify the heart problem and decide the need of stent procedure, said Prof Dr Imad Sheiban, an Israeli who is now working in Italy. He was the chief guest at the conference organised by Ramesh Hospitals on Interventional Cardiology on Monday.

Addressing the gathering, Dr Shiban explained the technology being used in the interventional cardiac diseases and the need of stent for the patients in emergency. He said that cardiac patient is being saved across the world by placing the stents in the arteries. Using the latest technology, they could save the lives which are extended in the whole of European countries and all peripheral countries.

Dr Ramesh Babu of Ramesh Hospitals said that 80 per cent cardiac deaths were occurred due to lack of knowledge and late response after heart attack. He said that the mortality rate has come down with the advanced treatment and added if the patient was brought to hospital in time, 98 per cent of lives could be saved.
