Belarusian doctors ready for next step in cardio surgery
Belarusian doctors ready for next step in cardio surgery The future is in hybrid cardio surgery. Belarusian doctors are once again ready for another step in development. As many as 264 heart transplantations have been done in Belarus already. In seven cases the vital organ was transplanted to children. Young patients can have such an operation done from the age of 10. It is due to the fact that a transplanted heart doesn’t grow as quickly as your own heart. Belarusian cardio surgeons intend raising the bar in the nearest future.

The novelty is in using allopericardium – a donor’s biological material in cryopreserved condition.  Simply put, it’s a frozen heart tissue. This method is unique and it hasn’t been described in scientific literature earlier. Thanks to this method 20 Belarusians have already received medical treatment. The youngest patient is one year old. The technique can be used for surgical treatment of all types of congenital heart defects.
