First hospital in Hanoi to establish cardiovascular surgery department for children
The Hanoitimes - This is the first general hospital in both Hanoi and Vietnam to establish a heart and chest surgery department for children.
Hanoi’s E Hospital has just announced its decision to establish a cardiovascular surgery department for children under the hospital’s Heart Center, Hanoimoi reported.
This is the first general hospital in both Hanoi and Vietnam to establish a heart and chest surgery department for children.
Statistics of the Ministry of Health show that every year Vietnam has about 10,000-12,000 children with congenital heart disease but only 6,000-8,000 children undergo surgery.
It is worth mentioning that congenital heart disease accounts for 90% of the total cardiovascular diseases in children, of which up to 50% could not find the cause.
The Cardiovascular Surgery Department for children at E Hospital will help diagnose and treat complicated cardiovascular diseases in children. Currently, on average, the hospital’s Heart Center carries out surgery for about 1,000 cases every year.
The patients were a few-hour babies, day-old children, or even children with only 1.7kg. The success rate of cardiovascular surgeries was about 95%.
