April, 21, 2021

A hybrid surgery was performed at the Heart Institute on a patient with acute thoracic aortic dissection. The peculiarity of this pathology was that in this case the bleeding from a ruptured aorta had evolved.
The team of the Heart Institute translocated the left subclavian artery to the unaffected area of ​​the aortic arch and implanted an endovascular endoprosthesis for the thoracic aorta.

After the intervention, the patient’s condition stabilized, he did not require blood transfusions and was transferred to the ward for routine treatment and observation. The patient is currently preparing for discharge.
