March 18, 2022 – Clemenceau Medical Center
Hospital announced that it has approved cautery technology for patients with
severe acceleration of the heart, using the Carto-3 Prime Mapping technology
for 3D scanning, which is characterized by high accuracy.
Carto-3 Prime Mapping technology is considered one of the latest technologies
available in this field, and one of the best devices in the United Arab
Emirates and the Middle East and North Africa region.
medical team in the heart unit at the hospital, under the supervision of Dr.
Khaled Awad, a consultant catheter and electrocardiogram at Clemenceau Medical
Center Hospital has succeeded in treating a 32-year-old patient, who was
suffering from severe rapid heartbeat, and was undergoing treatment with
medications. The cauterization was successful at the hospital’s heart center.
Khaled Awad, who supervised this successful operation, said: “There is no doubt
that the cautery technique using a 3D scanning device will be an alternative to
treat the most severe cases of tachycardia in the UAE.”
this advanced technology, it was possible to locate the acceleration and
successfully perform the cautery process in the area responsible for the
acceleration. In this patient, this was less than 4 mm from the primary nerve
in the heart as we addressed this without the use of X-rays.”
Awad continued, “This modern technology contributed to the procedure being
easily, quickly and accurately, and with a higher success rate. The new 3D
scanning device is characterized by its high accuracy, and its ability to
locate additional beats during rapid heartbeat, and its use is the best way for
patients with arrhythmias. The complex heart needs 3D mapping, to locate the
focus of the acceleration. Based on this scan, cauterization is performed
through the catheter.”
Center builds on technological advancements, innovative treatments, and
superior medical expertise across a wide range of specialties to deliver
patient-first healthcare excellence.
