Stenting Procedure

Marape adamant to deliver quality health services

Prime Minister James Marape made these remarks recently when witnessing the historical first-ever stenting procedure at the Port Moresby General Hospital (PMGH).

Stenting is a treatment where a small mesh tube is placed in a person’s blood vessel to widen it, and allow for efficient blood flow, preventing him/her from dying of heart attack.

PMGH has become the first public hospital in the country to carry out invasive cardiac cauterization to diagnose and treat coronary heart diseases.
