It was also found that Cardiac Catheterization for preoperative clearance is not a necessity while echocardiography is a need for patients with cardiac problems and high risk family history. Finally, the symposium concluded that the study of patients’ genes in medical diagnosis and how the design of gene therapy can be useful in the treatment of specific and non-specific illnesses.
