New methods of treatment are being developed in the regions of Belarus. Brest doctors will be able to apply them in the treatment of obliterating atherosclerosis of the legs. Two brigades of vascular and endovascular surgeons jointly performed the first hybrid operation for a patient with obstruction of the femoral artery. The master-class was led by Oleg Gryaznov, candidate of medical sciences, employee of the Center for High Medical Technologies in Moscow. After such operations the next day already the patient will be able to walk without any assistance. Today, the surgeons will conduct two more similar operations.
