Success in cardiac laparoscopy

by VTV411 April 2018 Last updated at 06:00 AM

VTV.vn - A new step has been taken by cardiology physicians in Vietnam as an endoscopy for an open-heart-surgery patient has been successfully performed.

The patient was a 61-year-old woman who was hospitalized in critical condition, suffering from heart failure and severe pneumonia. Doctors decided to do laparoscopy surgery because open heart surgery would result in a long recovery process and a high risk of post-surgery bleeding. The patient had open surgery 20 years ago and after 5 hours of surgery, the patient’s two-leaf valve and 3-leaf valve have been repaired. Her condition is now stable.
