By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 31st January:---- Dr Shiv Bagga, Assistant Professor Department of Cardiology at the Advance Cardiac Center, PGIMER won the first prize in the case presentation competition held at the prestigious Manipal University as part of the South Zone Interventional Council Conference (SIC-CON) 2014. The case involved a young patient with complex blockade involving the left main coronary artery conventionally treated through bypass surgery. However considering the patient’s young age he was advised a percutaneous angioplasty procedure. The case involved use of an unconventional technique “The Reverse Crush Technique” for which not many cardiologists have the expertise to perform. Dr Bagga was appreciated for successfully carrying out this technique in a complex bifurcation case and highlighting it as an alternative to bypass surgery in a subgroup of patients with left main disease.
