After carrying out an angiogram, Dr Illius found that the patient’s main blood vessel had 3 complex blocks, one of which was around 90-95%, another one was 90% and the last one was 99%. The patient's heart pumping rate (efficiency) was only 30%. Coronary testing of such a complex patient was done swiftly in our state-of-the-art Cath Lab in collaboration with our skilled cardiac team under the supervision Dr Zahiruddin Mahmud Illius.
Speaking of his experience at Evercare Hospital Chattogram, Badiul Alam said, “I have been suffering from diabetes for a long time and recently I was admitted to Evercare Hospital with severe chest pain. Although I had heard good things about the hospital before, I am tremendously impressed with their excellent management, international quality healthcare and the sincere dedication of all their staff, including the doctors and nurses after coming to the hospital myself. After contacting Dr. Zahiruddin Mahmud Sir, on his advice, I agreed to undergo heart surgery and within a very short time, my treatment was completed. I found the cost of treatment very affordable.. I am currently doing well and feeling much healthier than before. I am grateful to Dr. Zahiruddin Sir and Evercare Hospital for my successful treatment.”
