In the cardiology clinic "Center for Diagnostics and Cardiovascular Surgery" (Surgut, Yugra) successfully completed a high-tech joint replacement surgery to the affected thoracic aortic stent-graft.
These operations were performed in the District cardiology clinic before, but now created new effective technologies and tools to do the surgery less traumatic for the patient, which not only reduces the duration of hospitalization and rehabilitation, but also significantly reduces the risk of postoperative complications.
In a matter of urgency in Cardiac Surgery Cardiology Hospital admitted 70-year-old female patient with a diagnosis — dissecting thoracic aortic aneurysm (abnormal enlargement of blood vessels, which threatens to break him and certain death).
Traditional open surgery in such cases are extremely complex and involve a high risk of postoperative complications. Given the severe condition, the patient underwent endovascular stenting of the aorta, which allowed not only to perform the surgery without complications, but to save her life.
Surgut rentgenhirurgi operation performed under the guidance of endovascular surgery Sergei Terekhin, MD, director of endovascular treatments diagnosis and treatment of the department of cardiology FGBU "Endocrinology Research Center" of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Russia: "… In spite of the new method of surgical treatment of aortic aneurysms, experienced surgeons Surgut allowed to perform the operation entirely according to plan and without complications", — Said Sergey.
During the operation, the damaged portion of the aorta was "covered" metal frame — stent-graft, let down by a special delivery system through a small incision in the groin. According to experts of the endovascular methods of diagnosis and treatment of the District Cardiology, the stent-graft — it’s unique technology to strengthen the weakened vessel wall, which prevents the rupture of the aneurysm. The complexity of this method is that for each patient must be selected individual dimensions stent graft and hold it through a small incision in the groin to the place of aortic lesion.
