HYDERABAD, JULY 23. Yashoda Hospital is offering the option of Endoscopic Radial Artery Harvesting (ERAH), a practice which the hospital claims to be the first of its kind in the State, for cardiac patients.
Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Vivek Gupta, Chief Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon, said the latest procedure involves the use of highly-sophisticated gadgetry through which the radial is harvested. Unlike the conventional procedures which need a long incision, the new way manages with only a small horizontal incision on the hand.
"We use high frequency sound waves to harvest radial artery and vein for speedy and safe harvesting of these conduits," said Dr. Gupta.G.S. Rao, Executive Director, Yashoda Hospitals, was also present.
