Innovative minimal access surgery performed in Cuban province

Innovative minimal access surgery performed in Cuban province

Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, Nov 18 (Prensa Latina) A minimal access percutaneous endopyelotomy was performed for the first time in the Urology Department at the Camilo Cienfuegos Hospital in this central province, during the 21st At the Service of Life Conference, experts informed on Thursday.

This kind of surgery is performed to solve pyelo-ureteral stenosis, that is, a partial or total blockage of the area that connects the renal pelvis (part of the kidney) to one of the tubes (ureters) that move urine to the bladder.

Mariano Castillo, head of the National Urology Group, who headed the multidisciplinary team, told reporters that it is one of the most advanced surgeries in this specialty globally.

After having accumulated a broad experience in the performance of multiple endoscopic procedures in this branch of medicine, the Urology Department in Sancti Spíritus province has conditions to extend this service to other cases in the country’s central region.

This year, the 21st At the Service of Life Conference, which brings together renowned professors from Havana, Cienfuegos, Villa Clara, and Ciego de Avila, is dedicated to Intensive Care.
