"We use fairly expensive imported equipment and our doctors have very rich clinical experience," said Liu.

These doctors should be the valuable source of technological innovation. But, unfortunately, many good ideas rot in these doctors' mind, Liu said.

Calling on Chinese doctors to play a more active role in medical technological transformation, Liu said Changhai Hospital has already teamed up with several Chinese research institutes to set up a research and development center.

The first "made-in-China" aneurysm stent, developed by Chinese researchers under his leadership, has entered clinical trials, he said.

"Only after we develop a series of world-level technologies and products can we proudly claim that China has become a leader in interventional neurosurgery."

According to the World Health Organization, cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases are the major causes of human deaths.

Data from the Chinese Health Ministry also show that cerebrovascular disease is now the second largest killer in China, following cancer. In cerebrovascular disease, cerebral aneurysm has the highest mortality.
