It is not the first time that doctors of the Heart Institute together with colleagues from Kovel Regional Hospital save the patient’s heart through joint efforts in Kovel.
This time a 16-year-old boy with a rupture of the thoracic aorta is the patient.
The head of the Department of Angiography and Endovascular Surgery at the Heart Institute Andriy Khokhlov together with a team of specialists- Oleksandr Holub, Oles Kyrylo, Andriy Huska – performed a stent-graft endoprosthesis at the Kovel Regional Hospital. They fought for the patient’s life for 3.5 hours. The operation was successful. Currently, the boy is in a stable condition in the intensive care unit and is feeling well.
This is the first such operation performed on a child in Ukraine!
We thank the doctors of Kovel Regional Hospital and its head Valentin Vitra for cooperation.
