Sentinel and CABG
CVSKL chalked up yet another milestone - this time being the first hospital in Malaysia to perform a bypass surgery with neuroprotection, using Sentinel. In this hybrid procedure, our heart team made up of cardiologists, Datuk Dr. Tamil Selvan, Datuk Dr. Rosli and Dr. Choo Gim Hooi ensured smooth delivery of the Sentinel device before handing over to cardiothoracic surgeon, Datuk Dr. Hamdan Leman for the bypass surgery immediately after.

Challenging Calcium via IVL
Adding another treatment option to our belt, our heart team performed the first intravascular lithotripsy (IVL) to treat severe calcified lesions using shockwave therapy. Using localized pulsatile sonic pressure waves, IVL selectively disrupts calcium from the arteries and minimizes trauma to the soft tissue. We are the first private hospital in Malaysia to do this.
State of the He(art): Revolution Apex
Faster. Lesser radiation. Better Imaging. The Revolution Apex is housed on Level 1 of the hospital and will enforce the Cardiac Diagnostics Centre of Excellence as a powerful imaging tool to assist our doctors by producing high quality images for an accurate diagnosis and better outcomes.
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.
