Our patient, 62-year-old Olga, had a right kidney tumor, which was complicated by a tumor thrombus of the inferior vena cava and the right atrium. The woman came to us from Odesa, already in a problematic condition. In her hometown, doctors could no longer help her problem. In ordinary hospitals, such patients are doomed because the diagnosis requires the work of a multidisciplinary team, in this case – abdominal surgeons, oncologists, cardiac surgeons, and perfusionists.
Fortunately, the Heart Institute has the capabilities to perform such operations.
Currently, Olga has left with her family for her native Odessa. It’s hard to imagine that this smiling, fragile woman underwent a uniquely complex operation just a couple of weeks ago.
The Heart Institute’s team:
Mikhail Zagrychuk, Roman Samokishchuk, Yuriy Bakunets, Mykola Kondratyuk, Gavryl Kovtun, Dmytro Loskutov, Stepan Marunyak, David Shabanov, Diana Kovalenko, Natalia Bardakova.
