Abstract
Its a observational review study,In this study we discussed different aspect related to initiating minimal invasive programme in Pakistan, most importantly its disease pattern in our south asian population , 90 % of the patients are young male suffering from Rheumatic heart disease , we also elaborate about poor health financing system in Pakistan, as vast majority patients are self paying, in addition we highlighted average age in our inhabitants , which is 15 year younger then European population in comparison . In addition we found high rate of post operative infection which lead to prolong hospital stay and extensive use of IV antibiotics. <br>When we talk about minimal invasive cardiac surgery in Pakistan , there is very little level of development . It is important to discuss why our population need that require procedure that particular attraction to minimal invasive cardiac surgery approach .I think emerging market is the 1st reason , in my opinion its engine of today’s health care . We all have certain challenges , if we look into Pakistan one has to understand that as very variant population.
