Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms surgery was performed successfully at the Near East University Hospital

Including the US, at rare hospitals in Turkey and all around the world, and only at the Near East University Hospital in Cyprus Open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms, which is a very sophisticated type of procedure that can be performed only in rare centers in Turkey and all around the world, was carried out successfully by the Cardiovascular Surgery Department of the Near East University Hospital. By performing the first open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms successfully, the Near East University Hospital has left its mark on another first in Cyprus once again. The operation, which lasted 8 hours, was performed by a highly trained cardiothoracic surgery team consisting of 8 staff under the helm of the Cardiovascular Surgeon Prof. Dr. İlhan Sanisoğlu. Life-saving operation to 74 year old patient…. Delivering information to the Directorate of Press and Public Relations Office of the Near East University, cardiovascular surgeon Prof. Dr. Ilhan Sanisoğlu stated that 74 year old Dutch-origin patient called Van Pruijssen was undergone a successful thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms surgery at the Cardiovascular Surgery Department of the Near East University Hospital. Providing information regarding the postoperative process, Prof. Dr. Sanisoğlu said: “Following the surgery, the patient was kept and monitored in the intensive care unit for three days. As no complications were developed, the patient was transferred to the normal ward at the cardiothoracic department. The patient can be discharged in a short time”. Open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is more challenging and a high risk procedure…. Touching upon the life-saving importance of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms surgery, Professor Doctor Ilhan Sanisoğlu delivered information on the treatment procedure. “Open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms is a procedure that carried out to replace the diseased aortic segment and prevent the aneurysm rupture. Although it can be life-saving for patients under risk of fatal aneurysm rupture, these operations remain challenging and are associated with substantial risk of perioperative mortality and morbidity. Some patients can’t be woken up after surgery, some of them might develop major complications such as stroke and renal failure caused by ischemic insult involving the spinal cord, kidneys, and other abdominal viscera. However, such complications can be reduced by different methods used during the surgery by experienced physicians. Knowledge of the state-of-the-art diagnostic, anesthesiologic, surgical aspects are certainly of great value to the physicians involved in the treatment of these patients at any level. In the current era, this is therefore a “hot topic” and these surgeries can be performed only in rare major centers around the world. Thanks to the latest technology devices and treatment techniques and the competency of our highly qualified physicians, we perform open surgical repair of thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm successfully at the Near East University Hospital” said he. The most risky surgical operations are carried out successfully at the cardiovascular department of the Near East University Hospital… In his final remarks on the issue, Professor Doctor Sanisoğlu indicated that both native and foreign patients with cardiovascular disorders preferred to receive their treatment at the Cardiovascular Department of the Near East University because of the renowned physicians with adequate surgical experience and high-tech equipped infrastructure of the hospital. He also underlined that the Near East University is the right address for the patients who are seeking safe treatment options for thoracoabdominal aortic disease.
