On May 20-23, 2019 Vice-Rector for Scientific work, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor Vladimir Khryshchanovich participated in the training seminar and workshops in the operating room of the Department of Vascular Surgery at the Center of Cardiology Jozefow/Warsaw. The training seminar and workshops were organized by the Head the Department of Vascular Surgery – MD, PhD Robert M. Proczka.
The training seminar was devoted to topical issues of diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute and chronic vascular pathology with a special emphasis on hybrid interventions in patients with arterial occlusive disease of the lower extremities. The prospects for the widespread introduction of high-tech minimally invasive interventions in hospitals of the Republic of Belarus were also discussed.
Reputable expert in the field of endovascular and vascular surgery Robert M. Proczka presented the reports entitled “Hybrid operations in treating patients with critical lower limb ischemia”, “Endovenous mechanochemical ablation for varicose veins of the lower extremities”, “Minimally invasive carotid artery surgery”, “Endovascular technologies in treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms”.
Vice-Rector for Scientific work V.Khryshchanovich took an active part in the round tables devoted to the topical issues of cardiovascular surgery as well as participated in 10 workshops in the operating room.
During the period of work at the clinic V.Khryshchanovich had the opportunity to get acquainted with the principles of provision of highly qualified medical care to patients with vascular diseases as well as to acquire skills in mastering modern equipment for performing endovascular interventions and techniques of peripheral vessels imaging.
V.Khryshchanovich introduced the achievements and best practices of the Belarusian health in the treatment of varicose vein disease, venous thrombosis, post-thrombotic syndrome, prosthetic vascular graft infection, acute mesenteric ischemia. Polish colleagues were interested in Belarusian experience in surgical treatment of patients with venous trophic ulcers, cell technologies, regenerative medicine, catheter-directed thrombolysis. The representatives of the Warsaw University Clinics expressed their desire to visit the Republic of Belarus and get acquainted in further detail with the achievements of our healthcare in treatment of patients with acute and chronic vascular pathology.
Vice-Rector for Scientific work V.Khryshchanovich also proposed the Polish colleagues to foster international cooperation in the field of medical education and healthcare with a special emphasis on minimally invasive treatment of patients with obliterating atherosclerosis of carotid arteries, abdominal aortic aneurysms, varicose vein disease. The cooperation will be mutually beneficial because of the opportunity to exchange experience and best practices of treatment of patients with acute and chronic vascular pathology in order to be introduced into practical healthcare of the Republic of Poland and the Republic of Belarus.
