Republican Specialized Center of Cardiology for the first time in Uzbekistan will establish technology for repeated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries.
Coronary artery bypass surgery is the operation in which own vessel of a patient is taken to be sutured to the coronary artery above and below the level of restriction. Thus, a way around the affected area or occluded coronary artery is created for blood. Moreover, its amount that enters the heart increases, which leads to the elimination of myocardial ischemia and disappearance of angina attacks. Such surgeries provide a full blood supply to the heart muscle, in spite of the affected coronary vessel.
In Uzbekistan such operations are performed in the Republican Specialized Center of Cardiology, the Republican Specialized Center of Surgery, the Research Center for Emergency Medical Aid, and the Namangan Regional Center of Cardiology.
The operation is not a guarantee that the patient will not need coronary artery bypass grafting. Through the years the need for such an operation can appear again, because the process of plaque formation is impossible to stop.
Today the repeated bypass surgery is not performed in any of the country’s centers. The specialists of the Republican Specialized Center of Cardiology decided to rectify the situation.
Performing such operations will be possible with the installation of the autohemotransfusion device, which will be procured within the project of the Ministry of Health and KfW-Bank aimed at fitting up the center with high-tech equipment.
It is planned that the first repeated coronary artery bypass graft surgeries in the country will start performing in early 2016.
