By Allah's Grace, a specialized medical team at King Abdullah Medical Complex- Jeddah has saved the life of a lady in her 90s from a liver tumor rupture. The patient was brought to the emergency department with abdominal swelling, pain and hypotension. After due medical checkups, she was diagnosed with low hemoglobin count, internal bleeding caused by a liver tumor rupture, and chronic liver disease. Through a catheterization, the team successfully occluded the arteries to the tumor by injecting fine granules to cut off the tumor’s blood supply. Thank Allah the patient was discharged from the Complex in good health. The patient continues her treatment at the general surgery clinic. 
On the other hand, MOH has recently launched the (e-health) App. to facilitate access to visual medical consultations on smartphones. In so doing, MOH seeks to employ cutting-edge technologies to enhance effective communication with service beneficiaries, and to provide them with the needed specialized medical consultations.
According to MOH, the first stage of the new App. will cover the Northern Borders, Asir, Tabuk, Jazan, Najran and Al-Jouf Health Affairs. The, the App will be used across the Kingdom, Allah Willing.
The App. is designed to enable audio-video communication from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. during working days, and from 1 p.m. to 12 a.m. on weekends. Accordingly, users can login into the App., communicate directly with a specialist, and have their cases diagnosed through the App. Hence, the specialist can answer the users' inquiries, and provide the needed medical consultation and the necessary medical procedure.
