A specialized medical team from the National Heart Centre at the Royal Hospital has achieved success in performing a complex and rare interventional catheterization operation on a 70-year-old patient with congenital deformities in the aortic valve.
The operation became necessary as the deformities led to a severe narrowing of the valve opening, accompanied by the development of extreme cardiomyopathy. These challenges made it impossible to address the issue through conventional surgical procedures.
The success of this operation represents a notable medical and scholarly achievement attributed to the health sector in the Sultanate of Oman.
The procedure was broadcast live, with a direct TV connection to a conference held in Dubai by the Gulf Intervention Society for cardiovascular catheterization.
