Diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac interventions

ICL 3, Level 2 Outpatient Block

Small beginnings. Big aspirations​

We started the first public interventional cardiology service with a single cath lab. Over the years, our case load has grown by leaps and bounds, as has the complexity of the cases we have taken on.

In the year 2016, we opened a second cath lab and most recently, in August 2018, a third. The rest, as most would say, is history. For us, however, this is only the beginning of an exciting first chapter in the annals of Sarawak cardiology.

Beyond coronaries

While coronary intervention will continue to be the bread and butter of interventional cardiology, we are expanding our focus to encompass a wider range of invasive therapeutics, like cardiac rhythm device implantation, electrophysiological study and catheter ablation, percutaneous valvular intervention and peripheral vascular intervention. 



Percutaneous coronary intervention 


Balloon angioplasty

Rotational atherotomy

Intravascular ultrasound


Fractional flow reserve


Cardiac rhythm device implantation


Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator

Cardiac resynchronization therapy

Loop recorder implantation


Percutaneous valvular intervention 

Percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC)

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)


Electrophysiology and catheter ablation

Electrophysiological study

Radiofrequency ablation

Peripheral intervention

Renal denervation

Renal artery stenting
