The Republican Heart Centre hosted the workshop on «Aortic abdominal endoprosthesing» using modern methods of prosthetic devices fixation.
On August 5 and 6, the Republican Heart Centre hosted the workshop on «Aortic abdominal endoprosthesing» . The workshop was held by Timur Khafizov, the head of the x-ray surgery methods of diagnosis and treatment department, candidate of Medical Science.
Vascular and heart surgeons from Ufa, St. Petersburg, Chelyabinsk, Orenburg, Tomsk, Khanty-Mansiysk and Cheboksary were invited to the workshop.
During the two days of the educational course, Timur Khafizov showed his colleagues two demonstration surgeries held on the patients with complex anatomy of the aorta abdomen region cervix using modern methods of prosthetic devices fixation.
Such surgeries have been held in the Republican Heart Centre since 2011, however without fixation.
«The patients that went through the surgery differ from the previous ones because their aneurysmal neck is problematic for fixation. We used a device to fix the endoprosthesis to the aortic walls, which prevents it from sliding in. Patients with such anatomic structure are about 10-12 percent of the overall number of patients with aneurysm in our region», commented Timur Khafizov.
On the second day of the workshop, Timur Khafizov looked into these cases in detail and discussed the future of the endovascular surgery development.
Construction of a new surgery facilitycommencedin the Republican Heart Center
On July 10, 2019 the Republican Heart Center held the official ceremony of laying a capsule into the foundation of the new surgery facility, which greenlit its construction.

The Republican Heart Center is a specialized medical office that treats patients with cardiovascular diseases. In the recent years the Center focused on introducing modern methods of diagnostics and treatment of illnesses, which also increased the amount of surgical procedures on heart and blood vessels. During the past 7 years the Center doubled the amount of surgeries performed within its walls, while the number of some types of treatment increased even more. More than 2000 patients are being treated within the Heart Center and up to 20 new intervention approaches are being introduced annually. However, new methods of work are also demanded. In 2013 planning and design of a new cardiosurgical facility commenced.
This idea was supported by the government of Republic of Bashkortostan and soon after the design procedures were finished, construction commenced on the territory of RCC. This construction is a part of Republican targeted investment program.
The surgical facilitywill be a nine-storey building with 10 surgery theatres, including a hybrid one, preserved rooms of emergency department and modern equipment. It will accommodate 135 patients. The overall area of the building will be 30000 square meters.
The new facility will decrease the amount of post-surgery complicationsand introduce new methods of surgical treatment, improve the stay of patients and personnel as well as increase the expectancy and quality of the patients’ lives. This will grant the Heart Center a dominant position among similar establishments of both Russia and foreign countries.
The construction of the new surgical facility is being financed by federal and regional budgets. The overall volume of investments for the construction andequipment procurement is more than 6 billion rubles.
