Institute - 25! The first in Ukraine heart surgery with artificial blood circulation - 50!
In the 2008 the community of heart surgery had a double anniversary - marks 25 years since the founding of the Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery
and 50 years from the date of the first heart surgery with artificial circulation.
Timing for such a young community considerable. How infancy surgery one of the most important organs for human life? Soaking in history.
The era of cardiac surgery began with a search for methods of life support the body during cardiac arrest and disabling lung,
and then the correction of the defect in the open, "dry" heart.
Were drafted four directions :
Cross-circulation with the next of kin
Total body cooling to 28°С
Record time of circulatory arrest - 97 minutes
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Excessive pressure О2 – about 2 atmospheres
Threshold voltage of blood О2 up to 1000%
The basis was laid in 1923. In Russia Bryuhonenko S.S. and Terebinskiy N.N. in Germany, received a patent for device
The first experimental heart-assist device was developed by Nikolai Mikhailovich Amosov in 1957
He also carried out its first operation with artificial circulation in 1958
In 1993, the Institute had developed the world's first computer simulator of cardiopulmonary bypass, received a diploma and a prize
for the best work in Arles (France).
For 50 years, the Institute conducted more than 150 000 heart operations.
Performs all types of surgical intervention for heart patients to newborns and up to old people.

According to European standards in Ukraine to carry out 35,000 operations a year, and performed (with centers) around 12 000 – 36%
