Recently at the Heart Institute, a transfemoral (implantation) implantation of the last-generation prosthesis of the aortic valve was conducted on an 84-year-old woman having been diagnosed with critical aortic stenosis with apparent calcification of the openings of the aortic valve. The procedure was fulfilled by the team of doctors (Andrew Maksakov, Maxim Shimanko, Konstantin Boyko, Nikolai Stan Kolya Stan, Natalia Ponich Gorobievsky, Yana Antonyuk, Maria Slyubik) headed by Andriy Hohlov, head of the Department of Endovascular Surgery and Angiography.
In the video below the implantation of the aortic valve and the results of surgical intervention with a significant positive dynamics are presented.
For the first time in Ukraine, the aortic valve endoprosthesis of the new generation was implanted in the Heart Institute.
The patient, 75 years old, had a complicated disease of the aortic valve, damage to the ascending aorta by calcinosis and a number of concomitant diseases, which combined implied a very high risk of the traditional surgery.
“Operation of mitral valve replacement after the commissurotomy of the mitral valve, performed 30 years ago, a patient with hepatitis C.
With a small hypothermia of down to 32 degrees, you can completely painlessly compress the aorta up to 15 minutes. This time is enough for prosthetics. Watch. Maybe someone will learn from my many years of experience.”
