Professor of Cardiology, Nicholas Ossei-Gerning, has charged heart surgeons in the country to adhere to stringent professionalism to rescue cardiovascular patients from premature deaths.
His call comes at a time that the World Health Organisation (WHO) says heart diseases are prevalent in Ghana.
The Medical Director of Euracare Advanced Diagnostics and Heart Centre in Accra says health experts must discharge their duties with distinguished probity plus cutting-edge technology to save lives.
The University of South Wales and University of Cape Coast Cardiology Professor further challenged health professionals to comply with international standards in order to protect records of patients and abide by ethics of confidentiality.
Prof Ossei-Gerning also admonished cardiovascular patients to adhere to regular health exercises and screening to minimise the rising spate of heart-related cases in Ghana.
The Euracare Advanced Diagnostics and Heart Centre is composed of a cardiac catheterisation laboratory for both diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of heart conditions.
