Thanks to a collaboration project that was developed by Swiss cardiologists, the Coeur de la Tour Foundation, and BPKIHS, a teaching hospital in Dharan, it has been possible, within two years and using a "hybrid approach", to set up the first independent invasive and interventional program in East Nepal. 496 patients have been investigated and/or treated since January 2011, during an initial period of 23 months (coronary angiographies, coronary angioplasties, temporary and permanent pacemaker implantations, pericardiocenteses, etc.). In parallel with this, our Foundation, in the same area of the country, has also supported a pre-existing cardiovascular prevention program and has helped start a population-based study of rheumatic heart disease prevalence and treatment outcome among school children.
