Abstract: In 2011 there were 658 percutaneous coronary intervention cases performed with more than 60% of the patients presenting to the hospital as an acute coronary syndrome. Most procedures consisted of balloon dilatation followed by stent deployment, and 93% of these stents were drug-eluting stents. Procedural success was achieved in 93.3% of cases and an overall major adverse cardiac events rate of 3.6%. This includes a mortality rate of (0.5%). In addition, there were 25 Core Valve procedures carried out. This is more than twice the amount of patients who had a transcatheter aortic valve implantation in 2010, reflecting the changing direction of the management of structural heart disease.
