10/8/2021 11:19:22 PM

JAMMU, Oct 8: In a path breaking and futuristic success for entire masses of J&K, Dr Sushil Sharma, Head Department of Cardiology along with his team at Super Specialty Hospital Jammu, performed the successful angioplasty of a young patient with recently launched indigenous Dissolving stent or Bioresorbable scaffold- MeRes100 from Meril Life Sciences .This was the first of its kind implant of the recently launched indigenous dissolving stent technology in J&K.
It is pertinent to mention here that Dr Sushil Sharma along with his cardiac cath lab team has already performed more than 18 thousand coronary procedures including Simple and complex procedures to his credit with minimal to zero complication rate besides provide world class care to patients.
He is among few doctors of such repute who has devoted his entire life to serve each class and section of society and never done clinical practice in private sector so that everyone has equitable affordable and quality healthcare as much as possible.
Madan Lal a 38-year-old Male admitted in CCU having history of smoking , painter by profession resident of Uttar Pradesh began experiencing regular chest pain and diagnosed to have inferior wall Myocardial infarction and underwent angiography which revealed lesion in Right Coronary Artery suggesting need for angioplasty .
Considering his young age and type of lesion in his artery, Dr Sushil Sharma and his team decided to implant the recently launched indigenous dissolving stent or BRS.
Dissolving stent or Bioresorbable scaffolds (BRS) are similar in function to metallic stent but they are non-metallic, non-permanent mesh tubes, which dissolve over time (possibly in 2 to 3 years) after implantation. BRS is made of a polymer called poly-L-Lactide (PLLA), similar to the material used in dissolvable stitches/suture.
Dr Sushil Sharma HOD, Cardiology Super Speciality Hospital, Jammu commented that young Indian heart is at risk, there has been a rapid rise of cardiovascular disease in young patients, we are routinely diagnosing younger patients, even in their thirties or forties, with coronary artery disease, often caused by unhealthy or stressful lifestyles.
Dr Sushil said “Indigenously made Dissolving stent or BioResorbable scaffold –MeRes100 is a technology advancement which is bought by an Indian MNC.
Dissolving stent unlike metal stent doesn’t remain permanently in patients body, it dissolves completely once the healing is completed and thus leaving the artery back to its natural state .Also there will be no requirement for long term usage of blood thinners.”
