Orbita trial implications in patients from developing nations
“It’s good news” for developing countries where angioplasty as first line of treatment for ischaemic symptoms is not an option. “When angioplasty can not be offered as early on as in the developed countries, giving patients antianginal therapies is a very valid alternative”. Dr. Rasha Al-Lamee tells Heart Asia social media editor Robin Chung the implications of her unprecedented trial in more remote parts of the world.
