Human Organ Transplant Centre, Bhaktapur has started angiography and angioplasty services.
Angiography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the inside of blood vessels and organs of the body, while angioplasty is a surgical repair or unblocking of a blood vessel, especially a coronary artery.
Today, an 11-member team of doctors led by senior cardiologist Dr Yadav Dev Bhatta and Dr. Kartikesh Thakur performed angiography for free on two patients (Bimala Neupane, 50, of Suryabinayak Municipality-4, and Astalal Dangol, 37, of Madhyapur Thimi), the first patients for the test.
Talking to media-persons after the successful test, Dr Bhatta stressed the need for expanding the service also outside the Kathmandu valley.
