Fibroma of the heart
Fibroma of the heart is a benign single formation with a dense gray-white consistency. It develops from connective tissues, more often found in the area of the interventricular septum or in the ventricles. The disease in 90% of cases occurs in children under the age of 12, and only 10% of patients are adults. The danger of fibroma is that its development negatively affects the work of the heart, can lead to such ailments as arrhythmia, heart failure, ascites, etc. In this regard, cardiac fibroma requires accurate diagnosis and immediate treatment.
In Israeli clinics, all conditions have been created for an accurate diagnosis, which gives a complete picture of the disease in just 2-3 days. The best doctors work here, many of whom are world-renowned specialists. With the high quality of the services provided by the clinics, the prices for treatment are much more affordable than in medical institutions in other states. In particular, the prices of Israeli clinics are 30-40% lower compared to the cost of services for the treatment of heart fibroids in the UK or Canada.
What does the diagnosis of heart fibroma include?
The first thing that a patient receives upon admission to a clinic in Israel is a thorough examination by a doctor, consultation and referral to a number of additional diagnostic measures, which include:
- MRI ;
- electrocardiography ;
- biopsy of tumor tissue and other procedures at the discretion of the doctor.
The whole diagnostic process takes no more than 3 days, after which, based on the results, a treatment plan for cardiac fibroma is developed. Moreover, the decision on the therapy plan is developed collectively by a council of specialized doctors, due to which possible errors are excluded. The examination services are paid for by the patient at every stage. After the development of the treatment protocol, the full price of the course of therapy is formed and many clinics allow payment of the cost in installments, which simplifies the financial issue for the patient.
Effective treatment of heart fibroma in Israel
The main method of getting rid of the patient from the neoplasm is its surgical removal. The operating rooms of Israeli clinics are equipped with everything necessary to carry out the most complex operations, including the modern AIK apparatus, which provides full respiratory and circulatory function during cardiac arrest during surgery.
Fibroma removal surgery can mean a minimally invasive intervention without an incision chest, which facilitates the rehabilitation process, and with the performance of opening the sternum and removing the neoplasm. In most cases, operations are performed on a non-working heart.
After surgery, during the rehabilitation period, the patient undergoes regular echocardiography to monitor the state of the cardiovascular system. Such therapy shows good results, which is confirmed not only by statistics, but also by a lot of positive feedback from operated patients.
Despite all the manufacturability and complexity of treatment of heart fibroids, the cost of therapy in Israeli medical centers remains affordable for many patients. Services are provided at a high level. In addition, to travel to Israel, patients from Ukraine and other CIS countries do not need a visa, which not only reduces the cost of expenses, but also speeds up the process, and in many cases the speed of initiation of therapy plays a significant role in the prognosis for full recovery.
