Today, 4th March 2020 will go in the books of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital as a record-breaking day. The Cardio Team of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) made history today as they conducted a dual-chamber pacemaker implantation procedure without any external assistance.
A six member hospital team made up of two Cardiologists, Dr. Adu-Boakye and Dr. Lambert Appiah have successfully implanted a double chamber pacemaker device in a 70-year-old patient.
Other members of the team were Dr. Samuel Kontoh, Pharmacist, Ms. Adowaa Asare and Angelina Naa Abbey Bamfo, Scrub Nurses and Mr. Antwi, Radiographer.
Speaking after the procedure, the two Cardiologists emphasized that the hospital has highly trained specialists to deliver world-class cardiology services to the public and that given the necessary support, patients with heart conditions will not need to travel out of the country for such services.
They appealed to corporate Ghana and good spirited individuals to support the hospital’s Cardio Team with modern equipment and logistics including a Catetherisation laboratory CATH LAB to enable the team to provide a full range of cardiology services to the public.
They said the patient was doing very well and that there were more in the line to be attended to in the coming weeks.
