Current interview: Precise preoperative surgical preparation thanks to a silicone heart
An 80-year-old female patient needs a new aortic valve replacement. Since the old one is severally calcified, the leaflets no longer open properly. Due to various factors, the patient is considered inoperable. Nevertheless, to make surgery possible for her, specialists at the Heart and Diabetes Center North Rhine-Westphalia (German: Herz- und Diabeteszentrums NRW) have prepared the intervention based on an exact 3D heart replica.
Aside from conducting this research, Professor Stephan Ensminger, Head of the Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Department, also personally performed the surgery. MEDICA.de spoke with him about the reasons behind this intensive surgery preparation and its use in clinical application.
