According to the Pakistani government, over 45,000 angioplasty operations are conducted in Pakistan each year; an operation in which a small mesh tube is inserted into a blocked artery to allow blood to flow through it. Up until recently Pakistan had to import these medical devices, but now they're being manufactured in country. VOA's Asim Ali Rana files this report narrated by Bezhan Hamdard.
