Myocardial pathology and mechanical support of the heart and lungs

In National Amosov Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery, Dr. Kostyantyn Rudenko leads a team of highly skilled experts, who specialize in providing exceptional cardiac surgical and cardiological care for patients with a wide range of myocardial pathologies, heart failure, and coronary heart disease.

Our services include:

  • Comprehensive treatment options: Surgical, interventional, and therapeutic approaches for all types of cardiomyopathies and chronic heart failure. Our experienced team utilizes the latest invasive and conservative techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes.
  • Surgical correction of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: Our surgeons are renowned for performing the modified Ferrazzi operation, the gold standard in treating hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • Heart transplantation: We provide comprehensive care for patients requiring heart transplants, ensuring their well-being and successful recovery.
  • Mechanical support for the heart and lungs: Our specialized interventions, such as ECMO, VAD, and IABP, enable us to provide life-saving assistance to patients in need of heart and lung support.
  • Valve prosthetics and reconstructive operations: We offer advanced procedures for heart valve prosthetics and reconstruction, even for patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction.
  • Myocardial revascularization: We perform coronary bypass and stenting procedures to restore blood flow in cases of ischemic cardiomyopathy.
  • Resynchronization pacemaker implantation: Our experts skillfully implant resynchronization artificial pacemakers to alleviate heart failure symptoms.
  • Cardioverter-defibrillator implantation: We offer implantation of cardioverter-defibrillators to prevent sudden cardiac death and ensure the safety of our patients.
  • Transcatheter alcohol septal ablation: As an alternative to open surgical interventions, this procedure is available for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients with contraindications.
  • Cascade plasma filtration: We employ this technique in patients with myocarditis and heart failure to improve their condition.
  • Genetic and biochemical analysis: Our team conducts thorough analysis to diagnose lysosomal storage diseases (such as Fabri disease) in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • Management of pregnant women with myocardial pathology: We specialize in providing comprehensive care for pregnant women with heart-related conditions, ensuring their safety and well-being.

The department is dedicated to delivering highly specialized cardiac and cardiosurgical care, incorporating the latest advancements in the field. From the initial diagnosis to long-term postoperative management, we provide comprehensive support to our patients.

We are proud to host the Expert Center for Surgical Treatment of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, in collaboration with international partners. This center is led by Professor Paolo Ferrazzi from Monza, Italy, a leading figure in Europe for his extensive experience and outstanding outcomes.

The department also actively participates in an international program on surgical treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, collaborating with professionals from Italy, Romania, the USA, and Ukraine.
