The surgeries we do are not normally available in Fiji and not easily accessible by the poor and needy. The treatments we provide are:
Surgical Valve Replacement
This is done by open heart surgery whereby patients damaged valve is replaced by mechanical or bio prosthetic valve. This is a major surgery and requires the use of heart- lung bypass machines.
Surgical Closures of hole in the heart
This operation also involves open heart surgery. The hole between left and right side of the heart is closed by placing a patch to close the hole.
A diagnostic procedure to rule out narrowing in the arteries supplying the muscles of the heart. Special dye is injected through the arteries in the arm or groin while viewing under x-ray
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
Also known as angioplasty. Treatment of the narrowing in the coronary by placement of coronary stent.
A pacemaker is a small device that's placed in the chest through a small surgical insertion to help control abnormal heart rhythms.
Patients who have received pacemaker in earlier visits are followed up annually to ensure optimal functioning of the device. Annual follow up also help detect, correct and diagnose any abnormalities that arise in the pacing system and hence improving longevity of the device by appropriate programming.
