GUWAHATI, 2 May: Kolkata-based Apollo Multispeciality Hospitals has launched a comprehensive clinic to manage structural heart disease.

Addressing mediapersons here in Assam on 30 April, the hospital authority shed light on the latest advancements in the treatment of structural heart disease.

During the press meet, led by consultant Dr Sumanto Mukhopadhyay, specialists created awareness about the complexities of structural heart disease and the evolving landscape of treatment options available to patients.

Dr Mukhopadhyay emphasised the pivotal role of preventive measures, highlighting the significance of healthy lifestyle choices such as nutritious eating habits and regular exercise in mitigating the risk of coronary heart disease, which differs from structural heart issues.
