KARACHI: A new cardiac catheterisation laboratory was inaugurated at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) on Saturday with help from the Infaq Foundation.

Cardiac catheterisation involves inserting a flexible tube from the groin or arm into the heart’s vessels. Dr Tahir Saghir runs the catheterisation labs. NICVD’s executive director, Prof. Khan Shah Zaman, thanked the foundation for helping them buy an angiography machine.

The hospital sees up to 2,000 patients in its out-patients clinic daily. The lab was inaugurated by Infaq CEO Rear Admiral (Retd) Syed A. Baqar.
