Doctors from the Vietnam National Heart Institute successfully performed a complex coronary artery intervention that was live-streamed from Vietnam to an international cardiology conference in Singapore on Friday. The performance was transmitted live to the 33rd Annual Live Interventions in Vascular Endotherapy (Singapore Live 2024), in conjunction with the 13th CTO Interventions Live Course 2024, an annual international conference that took place at the Raffles City Convention Center in Singapore on January 25-27. It also proved the international integration ability of Vietnam’s interventional cardiology sector, as well as affirmed the position of Vietnamese cardiovascular doctors in world medicine. Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical option which uses a catheter – a small, flexible tube – to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries, or other affected parts of the heart structure, doctors said. Vietnam now has 129 interventional cardiology centers across the country and these facilities have been successful in most interventions, especially acute myocardial infarctions.
