LAHORE (PR): Due to the rapid increase in hypertension and heart diseases, a state-of-the-art Cardiac Centre is being established at Shalamar Teaching Hospital. In this context an agreement has been signed yesterday for the procurement of latest angiography machine for the cardiac centre. This centre will be equipped for angiography, angioplasty, pace maker, cardiac bypass and cardiac & valves replacement surgeries. This will be the first cardiac centre in northern Lahore which will provide comprehensive cardiac care to our heart patients. Shalamar Hospital is already providing the treatment to the cardiac patients, however due to non-availability of latest medical equipment and catheterization lab, treatment for most of the serious types of cardiac diseases and operations could not be carried out here.
