               Myanmar to Effectively Treat
               Cardiac Patients


               YANGON (Nov. 8) XINHUA - Myanmar surgeons are planning to treat
               cardiac patients effectively by using cardiovascular X-ray
system presented by a
               Japanese company. 

               A committee will be set up to apply the system, donated by
the Yogogawa Co.
               of Japan to the Myanmar Maternal and Child Welfare
Association, a
               non-governmental organization, here Saturday, trying to make
it available to all
               patients in the capital, The New Light of Myanmar newspaper
reported Sunday.

               Myanmar surgeons successfully performed cardiac operations
for the first time in
               Yangon's Defense Services General Hospital in August last
year together with
               their Singaporean counterparts by inserting balloon
catheters in the hearts of four
               cardiovascular patients. 

               Meanwhile, Myanmar specialists also successfully
transplanted for the first time a
               kidney on a 41-year-old woman in May the same year,
according to an official
               report earlier.
