Siberian cardiologists have adopted new methods of treatment of the disease in young patients. The operation is performed by the remote and does not require prolonged hospitalization.

The very next day after surgery, Sasha is preparing for discharge home. The fact that the boy had heart problems, recalls only 3 small scar.

The child was born with a heart defect. Between his right and left ventricles was a small gap. Because of this, in the heart of the blood circulation.

"For four years, every year we do ultrasound, and we did not increase it. Was a normal state of health, he was moving — says Sasha‘s mom Larissa Korableva. — Since February, began to complain — his legs began to hurt, his hands began to hurt."

When Sasha was examined, it was found that the gap between the ventricles increased. Doctors warned to operate on. Otherwise, the child will eventually get worse. 

"Develops pulmonary hypertension, from which children suffer. Which leads to disability, the child behind in development, is forced to take a lot of drugs. And quite expensive drugs", — says Olga Suzdaleva pediatric cardiologist.

According to cardiologists, such vices to children, as a rule, eliminate during open heart surgery. After all, the job requires jewelry manipulation both with the body and with the vessels. Sasha became the first patient, who closed the hole in the heart of the new technology. With the help of special instruments through a small incision in the chest.

"We are working tools, but they are usually short — but it is normal. Here it all remotely — we are far enough away from the patient, from the fields where we operate, and even farther from dyrkochki that is there. We do not see the patient’s heart — only on the monitors "- says head of department of cardiac surgery in young children, Alexander Omelchenko.

The entire operation lasts an hour and is held under the constant supervision of an ultrasound. Itself a patch that closes the hole between the ventricles, is made of special synthetic fibers. She is very thin — not to damage the fabric.  

Novosibirsk Federal Research Institute — one of the largest in Russia. In pediatric cardiology annually operate about one and a half thousand children from different regions.

Operation of the new technology at the institute are planning to put on stream. According to doctors, this kind of surgery requires about 70% of young patients. It is one of the most common heart defects.

As they say cardiologists, in fact it was the launch of the so-called operation "one day." Sew up the hole in the heart like a wound on his hand, and now — with the help of a new method — is possible.

"He combined the advantages of all methods that have been before. Cuts, no cardiopulmonary bypass, no hospitalization. That is an outpatient procedure has become. Possible to come in the morning to the evening to make the control and release the child home," — says pediatric cardiologist Marina Novikova.

Doctors emphasize that not all heart defects can be eliminated by this method. Basically it is the size of the openings of one centimeter. But even as such and are found most often in children.
