We are Korea’s first hospital that has succeeded in conducting two procedures for ventricular septal rupture patients at the same time.

  • Date : 2020-06-04
Sejong Hospital, Korea's only cardiology hospital, has successfully performed a coronary intervention and percutaneous ventricular septal defect occlusion at the same time for a patient with acute myocardial infarction leading to heart failure and ventricular septal rupture.
Surgical treatment cases were reported in the past, but this is the first time that two procedures were performed at the same time.

As human average lifespan and life expectancy keep increasing and maintaining good quality of life for the elderly is emerging as an important challenge, Sejong Hospital will continue our effort to increase the survival rate of heart disease patients and improve their quality of life by taking various treatment options into consideration.
