Regional Cardio cerebrovascular Center

By 1998 the Changnam National University Hospital has achieved over a 1000 open-heart surgeries. The Changnam National University Hospital is regarded as highly important in the Tertiary Hospital in Central districts organization as approximately 100 open-heart surgeries and 500 PCIs are conducted annually. The Cardiac function test room, the cardiac internal medicine and thoracic-and-cardiovascular surgery wards are functioning together. We opened the cardiac critical patient room and thoracotomy room in the emergency care center on the 3rd floor to provide adequate medical services.

Main treatments:

    1. Cardiac internal medicine department
  • Coronary dissections balloon angioplasty and Percutaneoustransluminal angioplasty:

    Insert long catheter into artery with topical anesthesia. The catheter reaches clogged part in coronary dissection through artery. At that time, the little balloon at the end of the catheter expands to pressured artery wall. It will open the narrowed coronary. Percutaneous trans luminal angioplasty expands narrowed blood vessel to insert stent.

    Percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty:

    Place a balloon-like object in at the narrow valves to expand the narrow part. It operates for mitral stenosis, coarctation of aorta and pulmonary stenosis patients.

    Arteriarenalis and peripheral arteryballoon angioplastyand Percutaneoustransluminal angioplasty

    - artificial heart pacemaker enthesis
    - operation is on Sick sinus and AVB patients

    2. Pediatrics
  • - cardiac catheterization of Congenital heart defect and non-surgery intervention - patent ductusarteriosus - atrialseptal defect - patent foramen ovale
    3. Thoracic and cardiovascular surgery
  • - congenital heart defect surgery
    - cardiac valves refreshment
