Historical Background of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Mandalay General Hospital In 1977, there was no separate cardiac unit at Mandalay General Hospital, but Physician U Aung gave treatments for patients with heart diseases at Medical Unit (1) until 1980. From 1981 to 1991, Professor U Tin Aung Swe, Professor Daw Myint Myint Aye and Professor U Pe Win carried on providing care for cardiac patients at the same unit. In 1992, the cardiac unit was separately opened in the place where the monks’ medical ward exists now. Professor Daw Cho Mar Lay was the first cardiologist who was responsible for the running of this unit. She was taken over by Professor U Aung Chein in 1996, Professor Daw Khin May San in 1998 and Professor U Tun Shwe in 2004 repectively. Now Professor Daw Than Than Kyaing is working as Head of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine. In 1999, Shan Phat Yeik Thar Family made a generous donation towards the building of a new three-storied cardiac unit, which was opened on 5th June, 2000. With the use of Givernment’s funding, a Cardiac Cath Lab was set up on 27th February, 2001 and as a result, Myanmar heart specialists could collaborate with eminent cardiologists from different countries to make specific diagnoses and better treatments for heart diseases. In 2003, Myanmar heart specialists could provide Angiogram, PCI and procedures independently without foreign aid. In addition, The GE Cath Lab and the Shimadzu Cath Lab were set up on 13th February, 2013 and on 2nd June, 2015 respectively. Mandalay General Hospital is considered reliable by patients in Upper Myanmar and so the number of patients is increasing day by day. Consequently, there isn’t enough space for heart patients in the cardiac unit. Daw Chit Chit ( Myint Myint Khin Htow Mont) raised funds for a five-storied building, which was opened 16th June, 2016. She also launched an appeal fund for a new 8 storied-building, which will be opened in March 2020.
