Dienst Cardiologie, een referentie in de hartzorg

Binnen het AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV profileert de dienst Cardiologie zich als een vooruitstrevende, dynamische, maar vooral coherente eenheid. In een interview vroegen we diensthoofd dr. Yves Vandekerckhove om toe te lichten hoe de accenten in de loop der jaren verschoven zijn. Hijzelf en zijn team stellen niet alleen alles in het werk om hartpatiënten de best mogelijke zorgen toe te dienen, maar spitsen er zich ook op toe de kennisevolutie inzake hartritmestoornissen, hartklepziekten en hartverzwakking op de voet te volgen en er vanuit eigen klinisch onderzoek ook zelf toe bij te dragen.

Transkatheteraortaklepimplantaties

Transkatheteraortaklepimplantaties

Eind jaren 50 maakte de ontwikkeling van de hart-longmachine hartklepvervangingen mogelijk. In de loop der jaren werden progressief betere operatietechnieken en klepprotheses geïntroduceerd. Toch blijft er een groeiende groep bejaarde hoogrisicopatiënten waarbij de “klassieke”klepchirurgie als te riskant wordt ingeschat. Voor deze groep patiënten werd TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation) ontwikkeld.

Mitralisklepchirurgie via kleine incisie

Mitralisklepchirurgie via kleine incisie

Bij minimaal invasieve hartchirurgie, een nieuwe tak in de klassieke hartchirurgie, wordt getracht om de patiënt hetzelfde resultaat te kunnen bieden als bij de ‘standaard’ operatie, doch met meer aandacht voor het comfort van de patiënt, cosmesis en rehabilitatie. Deze techniek wordt toegepast bij mitralisklepchirurgie. De laatste jaren is een aantal kleinere incisies beschreven, zoals ministernotomie, kleine parasternale incisie rechts, of kleine thoracotomie rechts (‘sleutelgatchirurgie’). Sedert eind 2005 is de afdeling hartchirurgie (diensthoofd dr. Rocher) met succes gestart met mitralisklepoperaties en sluiten van Atrium Septum Defects (ASDs) via kleine thoracotomie rechts.
