The second regional vascular centre at the G. Zakharyin clinical hospital No. 6 has been working for a month already. So far, 90 patients had an angiographic study, 30 of them received stents.
The average age of patients who get on the table of cardiac surgeons is 70 years. During the working shift, doctors conduct about 6-7 studies.
People with coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis of the coronary vessels need angiography.
Currently, patients for coronary angiography are those from the cardiology departments of the G. Zakharyin hospital.
The next step in ensuring the availability of high-tech research for the Penza Oblast residents will be the development of routing, according to which patients will be sent for coronary angiography from outpatient hospitals.
