#KnowYourOptions: Endovascular Surgery
We are proud to announce that CVSKL is the first hospital in Malaysia to introduce another treatment option under our belt - using rotational atherectomy for peripheral vessels! The system is an innovative peripheral revascularization platform designed to restore flow through the many types of lesions encountered in peripheral arterial disease (PAD). In rotational atherectomy, plaque is removed by a 'sanding' motion through concentrically rotating, specially designed tip. The use of rotational atherectomy is common in complex cardiology cases.

To Serve and Treat The Heart, With Heart
Setting up the CVSKL Foundation has been a long time vision of our doctors, particularly our Chairman and cardiothoracic surgeon, Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Yahya Awang.
This vision was realised as CVSKL Foundation was launched by its’ Patron, Yang Di Pertuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Tuanku Muhriz ibni Almarhum Tuanku Munawir along with our Board of Trustees. We have started the ball rolling by donating RM1 million with a mock cheque handover ceremony from CVSKL, represented by Datuk Dr Rosli Ali, consultant cardiologist at CVSKL and it’s received by Tan Sri Datuk Seri Rashpal Singh, Chairman of CVSKL Foundation.
The Foundation aims to support medical advancement and research initiatives, increase awareness on cardiac and vascular diseases and to provide financial support to patients in need through management of funds received and raised.
We’d also like to thank Tuanku for gracing this momentous occasion with his presence. Menjunjung kasih Tuanku.

Protection Against Stroke: Sentinel
The Sentinel device stands guard against dislodged debris from reaching your brain. Two tiny filters are placed in the main arteries that carry 90% of the blood to the brain and they collect any dislodged debris, preventing it from traveling to the brain. CVSKL is proud to be the first hospital in Malaysia to utilise this device commercially, thanks to the expertise and skills of our cardiologists.
