First time in Ukraine – Endovascular Implantation of the Latest Generation o Aortic Valve Evolut Pro
At the beginning of the new 2021, a special TAVI procedure was performed at the Heart Institute: for the first time in Ukraine, the latest generation of endovascular aortic valve Evolut Pro by Medtronic was implanted.
A 78-year-old patient underwent septal alcohol ablation of an obstructive form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy last year, and after a reduction in the gradient, TAVI surgery was performed in safer conditions (to avoid suicide ventricle syndrome). The patient was discharged home in good condition. The procedure was performed by the head of the Department of Endovascular Surgery and Angiography Andriy Khokhlov with the team of doctors of the Heart Institute: Oleg Zelenchuk, Mykola Stan, Maksym Shimanko, Yana Antonyuk, Lada Kononova, Natalia Kolibayeva, Khrystyna Monastyrska, Natalia Galkina, Natalia Lyovina.
