Selection of Patients
Selection of Patients is an important preparation for the surgery. A team of cardiologists proceed to Lautoka, Labasa and Suva to assess and screen patients. During each visit, up to 200 patients are assessed of which about 40-50 are shortlisted. From the shortlist some 25 are finally selected and operated on. Thus far, the team has had an excellent success rate with the patients they have operated.
