Leading consultants from the Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals, one of the largest centers for the diagnosis and management of patients with ICC in the UK, performed groundbreaking surgery on the UK pavilion at Arab Health 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Each year, the Arab Health Congress, the largest healthcare exhibition in the Middle East, attracts a high level of UK clinicians, clinics and healthcare technology companies. At the four-day event held from January 30 to February 2, 2017, at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, over 150 leading healthcare businesses, renowned hospital groups and esteemed clinicians from world-leading clinics were amongst the UK delegation traveling to the Middle East to showcase ‘the very best’ of British healthcare. The Association of British Healthcare Industries, the industry association for the medical technology sector in the UK, organizes the UK Pavilion to highlight how British developments are transforming the lives of patients and clinicians across the globe.

The technically demanding cardiac surgery performed at the UK Pavilion at the Arab Health 2017 provides hope to regional sufferers of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is the most common of all inherited cardiac conditions (ICC) and is associated with a higher risk of sudden death in the young. Due to its complex nature, clinical experience with these conditions is limited to a few centers around world, and the surgery carried out by world-leading specialists in heart and lung conditions on the UK’s state-of-the-art operating theatre located on the UK Pavilion is expected to lead to better practice for this complex condition across the globe.

Other demonstrations that took place on the UK’s operating theatre included shoulder arthroscopies, knee reconstructions and laparoscopic rectal surgeries performed by healthcare providers BMI Healthcare, and HCA International.

Paul Benton, International Director at the ABHI said, “We are delighted to be performing such pioneering surgery at this year’s Arab Health Congress. Our surgical ‘stage’ celebrates collaborations between healthcare providers, clinicians and healthcare technology companies and allows visitors to watch Britain’s best surgeons in action. It is also equipped with advanced UK technologies and is a flagship to the many pioneering MedTech innovations that are being showcased on the UK pavilion.”
