Aster Hospital, Mankhool opens state-of-art Cath lab with advanced Cardiovascular diagnostic facilities in UAE
  • Cardio Vascular Disease (CVD) is a leading cause of mortality in the UAE.  
  • According to a study on CVD deaths in UAE, 22% were attributable to acute myocardial infarction (AMI), 16% to cerebrovascular disease, 6% to ischemic heart disease and 5% to hypertension.   
  • Prevalence of obesity and associated non-communicable diseases are extremely high in UAE expatriates. 
Dubai, UAE, July 19, 2018:   With increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases in UAE, experts are urging communities to be more aware of early symptoms of heart diseases, and get diagnosed in time to prevent health complications. To meet the growing need for cardiovascular services in the UAE, Aster Hospital, Mankhool has opened a state-of-the-art Cath lab that will allow residents to access high quality cardiac services in Dubai. While the hospital is recognized for providing primary and secondary care services to patients in UAE, the introduction of the Cath lab affirms its efforts to introduce tertiary care services to meet the complex cardiac needs of the local population.
 
In the UAE, a 3-year prospective registry of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) patients found that patients were relatively young and had risk factors such as smoking and diabetes. 
 
“The incidence of Ischemic Heart Disease is increasing in UAE. We see the onset of heart diseases even in youngsters. The setting up of cardiac catheterization lab is for delivering comprehensive heart care at affordable cost,” said Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare. 
 
With health insurance being made mandatory, many expats are now seeking treatment for cardiac procedures locally, building more confidence in the local healthcare system, thereby increasing the demand for tertiary care services. 
 
With the new advanced diagnostic facilities and technological expertise, Aster Hospital at Mankhool, Dubai is fully equipped to meet this need and provide medical investigation services, cardiac care and treatments locally. Services like angioplasty are recognized as one of the most important procedures for treating heart patients and the hospital is working towards establishing a concrete emergency care system that excels at handling all levels of medical support and care.
 
Aster DM Healthcare will soon be launching a new Aster Hospital in Qusais to serve, and increase access to healthcare services for communities.
