For the first time, Pakistani surgeons have performed ‘His-Bundle Pacing’ procedure, an incredibly difficult process used to control irregular heartbeat through a pacemaker.
A highly specialized team of heart surgeons led by Dr. Azam Shafqat, Dr. Faisal Qadir, and Dr. Rehan Karim at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) performed this procedure on two patients.
Noor-ud-din, aged 45, was rushed to NICVD following a heart attack while Shamim Baig, aged 80, was brought at the facility for a slow heartbeat. Surgeons successfully implanted ‘His Bundle Pacemaker’ on both patients.
Talking to the media, Dr. Azam Shafqat said the procedures were performed successfully and the surgeons faced no complications. Both patients are expected to make a full recovery after which they would be discharged from NICVD.
