Good traditions must be maintained, especially if they are associated with the strengthening of international cooperation. The invitation of leading specialists of the Belarusian State Medical University to give lectures on topical issues of medicine for students and the teaching staff of the Tashkent Medical Academy has become such good tradition.
This time Professor of the 2nd Department of Surgical Diseases, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Vladimir Khryshchanovich presented lecture entitled “Evolution of treatment for varicose veins” at the beginning of the third decade of April.
As before, the lecture attracted wide range of audience members: 4-6 year students of the Tashkent Medical Academy, and the academic staff and faulty of surgical departments, as well as surgeons, clinical residents and graduate students. And this is not surprising, given the relevance of the chosen topic.
Varicose veins are a serious medical condition. This disease cannot be ignored, otherwise it is associated with development of multiple complications (thrombosis, etc.). Varicose veins are one of the most common peripheral vascular disorders, affecting about 20% of women and 10-15% of men.
Vladimir Khryshchanovich reported on the latest minimally invasive method of surgical treatment of varicose veins of the lower extremities. He emphasized that traditional technologies of surgical treatment of varicose veins are still applied, but today less traumatic methods are used. Minimally invasive surgical interventions using endoscopic equipment and microsurgery have become commonplace. Such operations do not require long-term rehabilitation; after a few hours, patients can return home.
At the end of the lecture, Professor Khryshchanovich traditionally answered the questions and held a discussion with the audience members.
