In a new cancer treatment, surgeons remove the organ, cleanse it, and put it back in place
Drainage of Infected Epidermal Cyst
Israeli surgeons have developed a revolutionary surgical cancer treatment technology that replaces transplant.
At Beilinson Hospital, doctors excised the affected lung, cleaned it of tumors, and replaced it after inflation and tissue testing. Throughout the operation, the patient continued to breathe with the second lung. Doctors say this method can be applied to other organs and forms of cancer..
A 40-year-old man was hospitalized because a tumor in his left lung blocked a major artery, causing it to collapse. Initially, the doctors wanted to remove him completely due to the long transplant queue. However, they decided to use a new technique to avoid deteriorating the patient’s condition and not use chemotherapy..
The operation lasted few hours and it was attended by a whole group of surgeons, anesthesiologists and technicians. According to doctors, such a method could radically change the treatment of cancer in all over the world.
Recall that recently surgeons also reported on the successful completion of the world’s first transplantation of muscle fibers grown in a laboratory into a damaged area of the heart of a patient suffering from severe heart failure.
