Doctors in Peshawar achieved another milestone by replacing heart valves. The Peshawar Institute of Cardiology has successfully performed a heart valve replacement procedure without having to undergo chest surgery. PIC spokesman Rifat Anjum said that this was the first successful operation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The operation was successfully carried out under the TAVI procedure.
The patient’s life would have been in danger if the operation had not been performed. She added that the patient is recovering, but was kept in the intensive care unit.
