We held the 49th meeting of The Japanese Association of Rural Medicine in Mie Prefecture in November, 2000. The main theme of this meeting was “Future Aspect of Health, Medicine and Welfare in the next Century, with special reference to the medical service in local community”.
Firstly, I introduced the history of our hospital, that wasestablished in 1938, named Chusei Hospital with 30 beds. In 1993, our hospital was transferred in present place, and renamed Suzuka General Hospital, with 500 beds. Since, our hospital has been recognized as the Suzuka city hospital.
Secondly, I mentioned my career as a cardiologist. My lifelong teacher, Professor Hideo TAKEZAWA, led me a clinician and researcher by bedside teaching, with intense passion and research mind.
Finally, I described a clinical results in the diagnosis and treatment for coronary artery disease in our cardiology division with my colleagues. Especially, focusing in recent one year, we performed percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to both native and in-stent restenosis lesions using cutting balloon TM. Initial success rate, rate of restenosis and complication rate were favorable results.
