Kazakhstani experts made another breakthrough in medicine. A new method of heart surgery was used in the National Scientific Center of Cardiac Surgery for the first time. The uniqueness of the technology is that it allows minimum injury of the heart muscle. The operation is performed through a small incision between the ribs rather than by opening the chest. According to doctors in the coming years, a revolutionary method will help save thousands of lives around the world. Two patients were successfully operated with its help in the center.
Serik ALIMBAYEV, CARDIOLOGIST, NATIONAL SCIENTIFIC CARDIAC SURGERY CENTER:
In calculating the number of our population about 90-100 of operations for implantation of the aortic valve should be carried out. But in the future the number of our patients will grow, because if previously we carried out a lot of operations with the open method of biological valves in the heart, then now we can use this technology to implant a valve in the valve. That is, again without stopping the heart.
