A medical team comprising of an Interventional Cardiologist and other medical doctors recently carried out a life-saving surgery by using improvised methods in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja on Friday, September 6, 2019.

According to the Chief Medical Director of the institution, Professor Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo, there is a dire shortage of skilled manpower and equipment in this branch of emergency medicine. However, despite this challenge, doctors at LASUTH saved the life of a patient recently.

In his words, “Pulmonary Embolism is a form of medical emergency happens when a clot is lodged in the pulmonary artery of the individual.  Globally, a medical condition which the fatality rate is quite high, urgent intervention is needed to dislodge and remove the clot, in order to save the life of the patient who would have succumbed to a heart attack.”

“In order to carry out this procedure safely, a Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) is required, which costs about 150 million nairas, to set up. Even though, LASUTH does not, as of now, have a cath lab but we are excited that our Interventional Cardiologist and other doctors recorded another feat in this area of medicine using improvised methods. This was indeed the second time this team would successfully carry out this kind of high profile procedure in LASUTH.”

Professor Fabamwo is optimistic that there are lots of medical possibilities in LASUTH if more facilities were made available to the team of medical experts across all branches of medicine in the institution.  He urged more philanthropic organizations to partner with the hospital in order to make such medical facilities available to Lagosians.
