Case study of definition and compare of medical interventions' cost of patients having a heart condition: the case of PTCA surgery
After having a review concerning the Cardiovascular Disease (CV.D.) and specifically the Coronary Heart Disease (C.H.D.), it is realized that the economic effects are a big burden for all the Health Systems. In these research it will be examined the economic assessment of P.T.C.A. It is remarkable that in our country there is no official data for the CV.D. like other European countries and there is a lack of research for the efficiency and the effectiveness of surgical procedures. Consequently, this study defines and analyzes the inpatient cost of P.T.C.A in three private hospitals. This research concludes in diversification on the total cost for the P.T.C.A and the importance of material’s category for the modulation of the cost. Finally, it is proposed that the health professionals ought to realize the lack of resources and to emphasize in the prevention.
