The surgical team of Prince Sultan Cardiac Center in Qassim saved the life of a 37-year-old patient through a successful open heart surgery. It was known that this operation was tagged as the largest and the most dangerous of its type especially in terms of accuracy and complexity.

The said patient was transferred from one of the hospitals in the Qassim region to the center's emergency department. He suffered from throbbing pain in the chest with severe pallor and fatigue, accompanied by a drop in arterial pressure. He was treated with immunosuppressive drugs and cortisone for many years due to a chronic immune disease that led to kidney failure which affected the patient's health status since childhood. The medical team was forced to give the patients with medications that support the heart muscle before surgery. 

With the patient's life-threatening condition, the medical team resulted to conduct a high risk open heart surgery in order to save his life. They replaced the dissected aorta with the aortic valve, repaired it and transplanted the dissected coronary arteries, feeding the heart muscle with the artificial artery. Praises to the Almighty Allah, the surgery was deemed successful. Upon the stability of the patient's condition, he was then discharged from the center to recur his life's normalcy.

The success of the operation depends upon the skills and capabilities of the surgical team handling the surgery and should also be carried out in a highest specialized heart centers with special equipment’s, capabilities, and expertise. With pride and honor, PSCCQ has these all. As much as possible, Prince Sultan Cardiac Center in Qassim is always looking out for every patient's welfare and wellness.
