Pakistan becomes 18th country in the world to manufacture heart stents

October 16, 2020





ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has joined the list of few countries having the technology to produce heart stents locally after Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the N-Ovative Health Technology Facility at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) today.

The PM Office said that the facility will be the first to locally manufacture cardiac stents, adding that it will also make Pakistan the 18th country in the world to do so.


Earlier, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry had said Pakistan will be taking “another big step” in medical technology with the inauguration of the facility.


“Today, the prime minister is inaugurating [a] heart stents manufacturing [facility] at NUST Science Park,” tweeted the minister. He added that the stents will be produced according to European standards, and would put Pakistan among a group of select countries that can produce stents.

Meanwhile, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill said that Pakistan would become the 'second Muslim country' in the world and South Asia after Turkey and India, respectively, to produce stents.


“It will save Rs 8 billion annually in foreign exchange. Congratulations to the nation and scientists,” said Gill.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Friday became the “second Muslim country” in the world to produce heart stents indigenously after Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the N-Ovative Health Technology Facility at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) today.

IKD launches new speciality to treat male infertility


PESHAWAR
: The Institute of Kidney Diseases, Hayatabad Medical Complex Peshawar has started a speciality Andro Urology to treat people with male infertility and sexual dysfunction.

It is the first speciality to start operations in public sector in the country. A six-bed ward has initially been dedicated to the rare speciality which can be enhanced in near future.

IKD has been offering services to the patients for the past three and half years but the ward was formally launched on October 24 after which there would be postgraduate training of doctors to do specialisation and expand the services.

Dr Mir Abid Jan, who is head of the ward, told Dawn that they were holding OPD and conducting surgeries twice a week where people with sexual dysfunction and infertility were being treated.

Head of facility says gynaecologists will be hired to start treatment of couples
“In future, we plan to hire the services of gynaecologists and start couple treatment. At present, only male patients are received in OPD and those requiring surgeries are being hospitalised,” he said.

Dr Abid, who has completed postgraduation in urology, European fellowship in sexual dysfunction and fellowship in infertility from Fatima Memorial Hospital Lahore, said that 15 per cent couples in Pakistan had infertility problems.

He said that they could be treated through proper diagnosis and subsequent treatment

The issue of infertility was prevalent among 50 per cent people below the age of 40 years, he added.

Andro Urology is a new speciality, which is gaining currency throughout the world because it is the scientific way to investigate the infertile individuals or couples and provide treatment to them to enable them to go fertile.

“So far, we have received 1,000 patients during the past few years, the success rate of cure ranges from 50 to 70 per cent which is in line with the international standard,” said Dr Abid.

He said that after formal inauguration of the ward, they expected that the speciality would groom further as it would be offering postgraduate training to the doctors, who would then be deployed in other public sector hospitals.

“However, we would send a request to the government to provide us with equipment and machines worth Rs50 million to ensure proper and advance tests for diagnostic purposes,” he said.

Dr Abid said that they would generate the amount incurred on installation of the investigative device.

“So far, there is no male infertility services in public sector hospitals and only female patients are treated by gynaecologists, the result of which is not to a desired level,” he added.

He said that with passing of time, they would start assisted reproductive services to help the couple have kids through the method.

Presently, these services aren’t available in public sector hospitals and the charges at private hospital are not affordable by the people.

“We receive most of the people through referral because the doctors in the public hospitals have been informed about the launch of the new speciality,” said Dr Abid.

He said that couple would be examined by the doctors to ensure their treatment after the speciality was fully developed. “Many doctors, who are working in the ward, are willing to pursue careers in Andro Urology,” he said.

Preparations in advanced stage for establishing disease control centre on pattern of CDC Atlanta


KARACHI: On the pattern of the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, United States, Pakistan has been trying to establish its own CDC, for which preparations have been in an advanced stage, to deal with epidemics of communicable and non-communicable diseases along with emerging infectious ailments and pandemics like Covid-10, and advise the national and provincial governments in dealing with national health emergencies, The News has learnt.

“Yes, we are in the advanced stage of establishing a Centre for Disease Control Pakistan like they have in the United States, China and many other countries of the world. Establishing such an institute was my long-standing dream, which is going to materialise within a few weeks or months,” Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Health Dr Faisal Sultan told The News on Thursday.

He said a draft legislation had been prepared for the establishment of the proposed institute and it was being vetted by experts while his team was also in the process of looking for epidemiologists, microbiologists, molecular genetics experts, virologists and other experts to be part of the centre.

“Either this institute would be established through a [presidential] ordinance or an Act of Parliament but all the legal formalities are being completed in this regard. This dream of mine is going to materialise very soon but it would be a great service to the nation”, Dr Sultan said, adding that not only him but several other infectious diseases and public health experts had been feeling the need for having such an institute in Pakistan for very long.

He maintained that after every crisis and emergency, a need was felt to establish centres like the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) was established after the Covid-19 pandemic and the National Emergency Operation Centre (NEOC) was set up for polio eradication. He added that this reactionary practice should come to end now and there should be a permanent institution like the CDC Atlanta to deal with such emergencies and plan for future threats.

To a query, Dr Sultan said the governments of the US, China and England had offered their assistance for establishing the CDC Pakistan, adding that in addition to foreign governments, Pakistani health experts working in the US, Europe and other parts of the world were also very enthusiastic in this regard and willing to help the country in having a world-class centre for disease control and prevention.

“I have spoken to the ambassadors of the United States and China and the British High Commissioner in Pakistan and they all are willing to help us in this regard. There are several leading Pakistani health scientists and experts who are working at such institutions and they too are very enthusiastic and willing to support us in this endeavour,” the SAPM maintained.

When asked when he felt the need for the establishment of a CDC like centre in the presence of the National Institute of Health (NIH), Islamabad, he said the NIH in its present form was not fulfilling the function of a centre for disease control and prevention despite having a national laboratory.

“The NIH has a different function and it is now heading in a right direction under its current leadership but unfortunately it is not serving the purpose for which it was established. Our proposed centre for disease control would be a quite different institution, which would gather information about diseases, analyse them and recommend actions and give guidance to the authorities on all aspects of health,” Dr Sultan said, adding that after its establishment, there would be no need for setups like the NCOC and the NEOC.

“The CDC Pakistan would not only be working on the prevention and control of infectious and non-infectious diseases in Pakistan but it would also be keeping an eye over road traffic accidents, other disasters involving trauma and emergencies in the country and presenting its recommendations to lower these incidents as well as managing them properly,” he remarked.

The federal government announced the privatization of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital, Islamabad on Monday in accordance with the Medical Teaching Institution (MTI) Ordinance.
Following the enforcement of the ordinance, the patients visiting the hospital for check-ups and tests will be charged fees equivalent to those of other private hospitals.

A spokesperson for the PIMS Hospital said that the promulgation of the ordinance means that patients will now be charged heavy fees for regular check-ups and tests.

Prior to this, the hospital had either nominal or no charges for their provision of medical services to the public.

The spokesperson also revealed that the cancer patients that are not treated at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital are given free treatment at the PIMS Hospital and that the privatization entails such patients having to pay heavy fees for their treatment
