​​According to the Northern Borders Health Affairs, the Catheterization Department of Arar Cardiac Center has been enhanced with an Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) device, which is the cutting-edge technique for intracoronary imaging using ultra high-resolution infrared radiation. “Thus, this device will help treat the most complicated cases, and will greatly reduce the complications in such cases. This new technique is a qualitative shift in the medical services provided by Cardiac Center-Arar. Besides, Myocardial Infarction Clinic was inaugurated in the Center during the last quarter of 2018,” stated the Affairs. 


It is worth mentioning that the Northern Borders Health Affairs features ten specialized medical centers (a cardiac center, three diabetes centers, three kidney centers, and three dental centers), as well as 11 hospitals with a 1,410-bed capacity, which are enhanced with a number of delicate medical specialties such as: neurosurgery, heart surgery, bariatric surgery, endoscopy, and others. Besides, the Affairs has 48 primary healthcare centers.
