Oncologists of the MRSC named after A.F. Tsyba performed a complex surgical operation on a patient from Nefteyugansk
The operating team of the MRSC named after A.F. Tsyba, a branch of the FSBI “NMIC of Radiology” of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation under the leadership of the General Director, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Andrey Kaprin removed a kidney tumor with multiple metastases to the lung, abdominal cavity and saved the patient from possible cardiac arrest.
A 49-year-old patient was diagnosed with kidney cancer when he was treated for acute coronary syndrome. Two stents were installed in his coronary arteries, and further examination revealed a tumor of the left kidney up to 8.5 cm in diameter.
He decided to undergo further treatment at the branch of the NMIC of Radiology – MRSC named after A.F.Tsyba. Here, during diagnostic studies, he was found to have multiple metastases in the lungs, mediastinal lymph nodes, and right adrenal gland. And the most dangerous thing is that a tumor thrombus has been detected, which has sprouted into the vena cava by 2 centimeters. The vena cava is the largest in the human body and flows into the heart. The danger of the situation was that a blood clot could come off at any time and block the pulmonary artery, causing instant death of a person.
The operation lasted more than three hours and required careful and well-coordinated work of the operating team. The patient was safely removed all tumour formations in the abdominal cavity, a tumour thrombus with partial resection of the wall of the inferior vena cava in order to eliminate the risks of spreading malignant cells throughout the body.
Despite the fact that the performed surgical operation can be called ordinary, it is considered to be of the highest degree of complexity. Its implementation requires the highest professionalism of doctors, cutting-edge equipment of the operating room and
anesthesiological manual by specialists of the highest level. Andrey Kaprin was assisted by: anesthesiologist, PhD Viktor Derbugov, two oncourologist surgeons, PhD Kirill Nyushko and Vladimir Chaikov, and nurses Olga Strelnikova and Yulia Voropaeva.
These are the operational weekdays at the MRSC named after AF. Tsyba in quarantine conditions. We wish our patient a speedy recovery, because his wife and two children are waiting for him at home.
