Perpetual Succour Hospital (PSH) is pleased to announce
that the first Cardiac Ablation procedure in Cebu City
was performed last November 24, 2007 at PSHs state-of-the-art

very first patient, Mr. Antonio Padua, a 63 year old American,
who had palpitation was diagnosed with cardiac supraventricular
tachycardia and was admitted only for overnight
observation without any complications. Dr. Victor Gonzalez,
Head of PSHs Cebu Heart Institutes Non-Invasive
Section, was subsequently our second patient. He too
was also diagnosed to have cardiac supraven tricular tachycardia
and was only admitted for overnight observation
without any complications as well.
very FIRST and ONLY ONE in Cebu City, the IBI 1500T8 Cardiac
Ablation Generator is yet another cutting edge equipment
