Simultaneous Removal of Tumor and Mitral Valve Plastic Surgery at the Heart Institute

September, 25, 2023

Performing simultaneous operations that require the involvement of a multidisciplinary team of surgeons is our strong point.

One of the recent examples is Mrs. Olena’s operation. After a comprehensive examination, the woman was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her breast, which required surgical treatment. But preoperative diagnostics revealed another unpleasant “surprise” – a heart disease: arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy with severe mitral valve insufficiency.

The decision was made to remove the tumor and plastic mitral valve simultaneously, and our team successfully passed this test. Mrs. Olena has already been discharged home. Her life is no longer in danger. We wish her good health.

Once again we remind you all about the importance of periodic medical check-ups to ensure your body’s health. Timely detection of the problem is the key to its successful solution.
