In the city of Izmail, on the basis of the Danube Regional Hospital, a modern reperfusion center was opened, where residents of the southern regions could receive high-quality and timely treatment of cardiovascular diseases around the clock. It is expected that 300 diagnostic coronary angiography and more than 100 stents will be conducted in the first year of work in a medical institution. This was announced by the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov during the opening of the center.

"The center will serve five districts, which is almost 420 thousand inhabitants: the city of Izmail, Izmail district, Bolgrad, Renaissance, Tatarbunary, Kiliysky and OTG Vilkovo. I am very happy that in two years we have become the first and only area in Ukraine, which has created a network of reperfusion centers. Our region has the largest length, and this network provides a European standard for the provision of specialized medical assistance. Here the life of absolutely concrete people will be saved, who without it would not survive or get a disability. And if you did your best to save at least one life, consider yourself unharmed, "said Maxim Stepanov during a conversation with journalists.

The center consists of angiography laboratory, intensive care room and auxiliary rooms. About UAH 14.6 million was directed to its creation and purchase of equipment from the regional budget. In the general staff of the institution - 15 people: cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses who have undergone a professional internship.

It should be noted that till now in the region there were 2 repertory centers operating in Odessa and the Baltics, which only saved over 800 lives during 2018. In particular, the branch office in the Baltics currently serves 7 northern districts. In the year there were 77 sentimentals. "Is this much or little? Just ask the people who made the stenting. They were alive, healthy and now enjoy life. Exactly this is now also true in Izmail, "Maxim Stepanov said.

According to the head of the region, the efficiency of reperfusion centers is the result of an integrated approach. It consists of emergency care, in particular, equipment for "fast" electrocardiographs with telemetry, as well as programs for the free treatment of patients in the first 3 days of stay at the repertoir center.

It should be noted that in Ukraine, cardiovascular diseases occupy the first place among the causes of mortality. Only in the Odessa oblast for 2018 more than 2,000 cases of myocardial infarction were registered.

Recall that the improvement of the quality of medical services remains one of the key priorities of the Strategic Action Plan of the Head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Maxim Stepanov "Intelligent Region" for 2017-2019.
