KHARKIV SURGEONS MASTERED NEW HYBRID CARDIAC SURGERY
Heart surgeons from Kharkiv performed the first hybrid cardiac surgery combining two already existing IHD treatments.
The operation implies almost simultaneous coronary stent (placing a tube-shaped device in the coronary arteries to recover permeability) and aortocoronary bypass (cardiac blood recovery). The surgery doesn’t require big section.
The doctors admit the following advantages of hybrid surgery:
- the surgery lasts twice less than usual one;
- minimum injury for patient;
- high efficiency of cardiac diseases treatment;
- minimalizing probable complications;
- faster recovery.
