The Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital Opens Korea’s First Vascular Center to Provide Concurrent Cardio-Cerebrovascular Treatment

 


 

 

First vascular center in Korea that provides concurrent treatment for the heart, brain, and leg veins with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists

The Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital opened Korea’s first vascular center that provides concurrent treatment from both cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists, and started its operation on September 1, 2021.

Blood vessels are spread throughout the body, from the head to the toes. If there is a blood vessel issue in one part of the body, it is likely to cause issues for other vessels. Therefore, it is necessary to go through a comprehensive check and treatment.

However, most vascular centers in hospitals require patients to undergo separate medical checks and treatment for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular blood vessels, even if the departments are located in the same area. Until now, no hospitals have provided concurrent and comprehensive treatment.

 

Quick diagnosis and treatment, reduced the patients’ economic burden and time, preemptive preventive treatment

This is why the Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital opened its new vascular center where cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists can treat a single patient at once, based on its leading vascular treatment expertise and experience in providing multidisciplinary treatment for the first time in the country. The center is the first in Korea to offer concurrent treatment from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists. It is also equipped with a comprehensive inspection system that can check issues on the cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and peripheral blood vessels at once with a single use of contrast agents for patients in need of an angiography. By only using a small amount of contrast agents, it is possible to reduce complications and side effects of the agents, guarantee patient safety, and reduce the patients’ economic burden and time.

At the new vascular center at the Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists will provide treatment for a single patient with issues or symptoms in the cardiovascular or cerebrovascular blood vessels, to check for possible issues in other blood vessels. Furthermore, the center will also provide preemptive preventive treatment for blood vessels that require lifetime medical care by confirming and deciding on the directions for treatment together.

The Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital Vascular Center Director Kim Seong Rim (Neurosurgery) stated, “The Catholic University of Korea Bucheon St. Mary’s Hospital has been one of the best and leading hospitals in vascular treatment in Korea as it began using angiography equipment from 1996.” He added, “Based on the high treatment success rates and experience in providing multidisciplinary treatment for the first time in Korea, our vascular center will introduce innovative medical services, providing treatment from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular specialists at once, together, at a single place for the patients. The center will become a new hope for vascular patients.”

Possible symptoms of vascular diseases include chest pain, dizziness, headache, paralysis, deteriorated eyesight, numbness, and pain. Those with chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and hyperlipidemia must regularly check their blood vessels as they have higher chances of developing vascular diseases.
