SQU Hospital Succeeds in Performing Mitral Valve Repair Using Advanced Technology
A medical team from Sultan Qaboos University Hospital (SQUH) succeeded in performing mitral valve regurgitation operations using a modern technology. The operation deals with the use of a "mitral valve clip" system, which spares the patient open-heart surgery in high-risk cases.
The operations were led by a qualified medical team comprising Dr. Fahad Al Kindi, Senior Consultant in the Department of Cardiac Catheterization, and Dr. Adel Al Kindi, Senior Consultant at the Department of Cardiac Surgery, SQUH.
This advanced technique constitutes a safe and effective alternative to traditional open-heart surgery. It enables the patient to discharge within 1 to 3 days after the operation.
