Boy, who suffered from hydrocephalus, was successfully operated
According to the official website of capital akimat, complicated surgery was conducted by doctors from Israel and Kazakhstan.
Well-known Israeli pediatric neurosurgery Shlomi Constantini, the head of the Department of pediatric neurosurgery children's hospital No. 2 Azamat Galganov on the basis of medical institutions have operated on 11-year-old boy suffering from hydrocephalus.
The operation took about 1.5 hours.
"The boy to whom we performed the operation suffers from hydrocephalus-accumulation of excess fluid in the ventricular system of the brain. There are several methods of treatment, and one of them is the implantation of a foreign body – a shunting system that connects the ventricles of the brain with the abdominal cavity and the cavity of the pleura, heart and atrium. But it is still a foreign body, there is a risk of rejection, infection, and this type of operation is unique in that it creates its own anatomical channel of the intraventricular systems of the brain, thereby helping to reduce intracranial pressure and reduce compression on the brain. Thus, the child will begin to develop and will produce functions which have not been vaccinated", - said Azamat Galganov.
In turn, professor Shlomi Constantini noted the high potential of the hospital for such operations.
"Everything depends on technology, and everything should be perfect. In this hospital there are several options for endoscopes, and the hospital has every opportunity to purchase additional equipment in the future. I am sure that in the near future this hospital will pay more attention to this, and it will have a positive impact on the further results of treatment of hydrocephalus in children", - the professor concluded.
In addition to surgery, Constantini gave a master class for students, residents and physicians from the regions of Kazakhstan in endoscopic treatment of hydrocephalus in children with the support of the office of public health of Astana city and public fund "DOM" in the framework of the charitable action "Give children life".
