Doctors from Military Hospital 105 visiting patient Thang

At night on June 4, patient Sy Danh Thang, aged 68 and living in Son Tay town, Hanoi, was hospitalized at the hospital in a critical condition. Doctors diagnosed him with myocardial infarction and that his coronary artery needed to be cleared.

Immediately, a technical team led by Doctor Phan Anh Tuan, Deputy Head of the Cardiology-Nephrology-Bone and Joint Department of the hospital, placed a stent for the patient, thus bypassing the damaged coronary artery allowing the blood to flow freely again.

Thang is now recovering with stable blood pressure.

Placing a stent to save a patient experiencing a myocardial infarction is a new and modern technique that the hospital has applied, contributing to more successful diagnosis and treatment for patients with cardiovascular diseases.
