With the aim to further transform the cardiovascular healthcare in the country, Asian Hospital and Medical Center created the Asian Cardiovascular Institute (ACVI). The Asian Cardiovascular Institute brings together the best among cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, radiologists, electrophysiologists, and allied health care professionals to provide high quality, comprehensive, and value-based care.
The Asian Cardiovascular Institute will provide world-class, compassionate cardiovascular healthcare within the reach of every individual.
The Asian Cardiovascular Institute shall establish a state-of-the-art, holistic cardiovascular institution with the highest standards of community-driven patient care.
It is the first and only advanced cardiovascular care facility in the southern part of the Metropolis which offers comprehensive cardiovascular diagnostic and treatment procedure using a holistic approach to heart and vascular care. It combines world class medical expertise, advanced technologies, and up-to-date heart and vascular care education to dramatically improve the prevention and treatment of heart and vascular diseases.
In December 2018, the Asian Cardiovascular Institute’s (ACVI) Interventional Cardiology Section (Cath Lab), Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (TCVS), and Peri-Operative Services (POS) teams performed its first Hybrid Thoracic Endovascular Repair (TEVAR). Hybrid TEVAR is a combination of TEVAR and a surgical procedure to treat two different diseases. It’s performed to lessen the risks and complications in treating two heart diseases that need an open-heart surgery by performing one minimally invasive procedure instead of two. TEVAR is a minimally invasive treatment for thoracic aortic aneurysms.
The patient, who has Thoracic Aneurysm and Coronary Heart Disease, underwent Hybrid TEVAR to minimize the risks and complications of the supposedly thorough procedure and was able to reclaim his life.
As part of its mission to establish a state-of-the-art, holistic cardiovascular institution with the highest standards of community-driven patient care, ACVI’s Structural Heart Disease, Catheterization Lab (Cath Lab) and Intensive Care Unit performed its first Transcatheter Aortic Valve Invasion (TAVI) in October 2018. TAVI also called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a treatment for aortic valve disease problems; it is a minimally invasive procedure for replacing a diseased aortic valve. TAVR benefits not just young patients who can handle open-heart surgery but chose to have TAVR performed, but also those that are not very young who cannot withstand the open-heart surgery and usually require bio-prosthetic valves.
With the full complement of specialists and in the field of cardiology, the strong partnerships with the allied medical services, and the support of the Asian Hospital Management, the Asian Cardiovascular Institute is looking forward to being recognized as the premier referral center of cardiovascular excellence in South Luzon. The Institute aims to extend its reach in providing state-of-the-art care by establishing networks with the healthcare community in the area. It is through these collaborative efforts that better healthcare can be extended to those patients who need it most.
The Asian Cardiovascular Institute is one of the four institutes of Asian Hospital and Medical Center. The hospital is situated in the heart of the plush green and relaxing environment of Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Asian Hospital is strategically located near some of the country’s most affluent residential areas.
