Emergency Closure of the Infant’s Ductus Arteriosus

Ukrainian doctors performed successful heart surgery on an 800-gram baby

In the Rivne region was born a child weighing 800 grams and with heart problems, which could take just started life. Only Kyiv doctors could save the newborn. However, they did not wait for the patient to be brought to Kyiv and themselves came to the maternity hospital in Rivne. The heart surgeons covered 500 km but saved time and did not create the stress the child could experience during transportation. The doctors brought everything necessary for the operation and the postoperative period. The operation has already been carried out. The doctors had to close the duct. This is a complex operation that requires the use of good medical equipment, professionalism, and the attention of doctors.

Earlier in the central hospital in Rivne, doctors performed a successful and equally difficult operation. Ukrainian specialists performed myocardial revascularization using the method of "off pump". This unique operation gave a man a chance to live a full life.
