Heart, Arrhythmia, Catheter Ablation, with/without Electroanatomical Mapping
Catheter ablation for heart arrhythmia is a procedure to treat rhythm disorders by eliminating abnormal electrical signals or pathways.
Electroanatomical mapping facilitates difficult or complex ablation procedures. It reduces complications, improves accuracy and reduces exposure to radiation.

Heart, Coronary angiography (Selective)
Coronary angiography is an invasive procedure where a fine tube is inserted to the heart artery and contrast administered to visualise disease. It is now commonly used with adjunct equipment to measure the blood flow across a narrowing as well as imaging if necessary.
The National University Heart Centre, Singapore is a regional pioneer in better characterizing lesions to guide the best treatment for the patient, and this may include not performing coronary angioplasty or stenting.

Heart, Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) + stenting (1 vessel) -Complex (defined as > 1 hr), with/without IVUS/FFR
Coronary angioplasty refers to a range of invasive procedures which may be just balloon angioplasty to complex multi-vessel coronary artery stenting performed with heart support to relieve blockages in the heart arteries.
In line with contemporary practice, this may involve the use of additional devices that objectively measures blood flow or provide intravascular imaging to optimize the angioplasty result and provide for a good long term outcome.
National University Heart Centre, Singapore also engages with the cardiothoracic surgeons to discuss complex patients to decide who may benefit from open heart procedures, or a hybrid procedure.
Abdominal Wall, Inguinal/Femoral Hernia, Bilateral Herniorrhaphy (laparoscopic or open)
A hernia refers to a bulge over the abdominal wall caused by a weakness or tear of the muscles. A hernia repair can be performed with either laparoscopic or open surgery.

Appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix and can be performed with either laparoscopic or open surgery. This is to treat appendicitis, an inflammatory condition of the appendix.
Gallbladder, Various Lesions, Cholecystectomy (open or lap)
Cholecystectomy is the surgical removal of the gallbladder and some tissues around it and can be performed with either laparoscopic or open surgery.
