A unique operation on the heart of a policeman from Rostov-on-Don was performed by cardiac surgeons of the A.A. Vishnevsky Central Military Clinical Hospital in Krasnogorsk, Moscow Region.

The patient underwent removal of a bulky 8-centimeter tumor that grew from the left atrium and descended into the left ventricle through the mitral valve.

The formation on the heart appeared very quickly within a few months and filled all the left parts of the heart. The dangerous tumor was mixed, combining myxoma and rhabdomyoma.

During the operation, all the heart chambers were treated with a special laser and electricity. In addition, coronary artery bypass grafting was performed and the heart rhythm was restored.

“The uniqueness of the operation is evidenced by the fact that the patient survived after such a complex manipulation. The tumor so penetrated into all parts of the heart that it was impossible to remove it either by hand or by instrument. Our cardiac surgeons had to cut the heart out of the chest by completely cutting it across. During the operation, the patient’s clinical death occurred twice, “said the head of the hospital, Major General of the Medical Service, Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation, Doctor of Medical Sciences Alexander ESIPOV.

The most complex surgical intervention was performed by a team of specialists from the A.A. Vishnevsky hospital under the leadership of the head of the cardiac surgery center, professor, doctor of medical sciences, honored doctor of the Russian Federation Alexander LISHCHUK.

After the surgery, the dynamics of the patient’s recovery is at a good level. In a week he will be prepared for discharge and rehabilitation on an outpatient basis at the place of residence.

“Top-level professionals work here. I perfectly understand that Dr. Alexander LISCHUK and his team saved my life. The tumor was developing so rapidly that the count seemed to be going on for days, “said the patient Vladimir.

A unique “hybrid operating room” has been created at the A.A. Vishnevsky Central Clinical Hospital, which is an innovative operational and diagnostic complex that combines all modern cardiac surgery and diagnostic technologies in a single unit.

The complex allows simultaneous hybrid open heart surgery in combination with endovascular interventional interventions (surgery on blood vessels through small punctures in the skin – ed.), And also makes it possible to carry out telemedicine sessions with the advice of operating doctors. The complex can carry out up to 50 high-tech operations per month.

Myxoma is a rare in nature disease that occupies up to 1% of all cardiac pathology. Has a malignant course. Often fatal.

The tumor itself consists of connective tissue and contains a large amount of mucous contents, is characterized by instability due to its fragility, which often leads to the separation of its individual elements.

The only effective way to treat myxoma of the heart is to remove it through surgery.

Rhabdomyoma of the heart is a benign tumor in the form of a single or multiple node without a capsule. Its structure differs from the surrounding myocardium.
