Our open heart surgery hit the number 10 on the 20th of August. It is definitely an achievement since starting the whole mumbo jumbo in June. It has been a steep learning curve; in fitting into the expectations of the institution. It is not easy running a cardiac centre as the risk is as high as it can get. I do look at this opportunity as a challenge and it is not an easy one to manage.
I am more familiar with the off pump technique which demands a swift control of the situation for the surgery to be successful. It is not easy but slowly with Prof Zamrin's guidance, it is a wonderful journey.I have my own objectives and aim , in line with the organization's mission and vision. To achieve this is a long shot but not impossible, never impossible.
To 10 and BEYOND!
p/s of course, in statistics.. the increasing number of cases would lead to an increase of possible complications.
