Discipline: Cardiologie

Hartactiviteiten geconsolideerd in gloednieuwe interventioneel-chirurgische cardiale eenheid

Wereldwijd groeien de disciplines cardiologie en cardiochirurgie steeds dichter naar elkaar toe. Geheel in lijn met de Europese adviezen heeft…

Luc Missault

Dr. Luc Missault, een groot gemis

Op de terugweg van een fietstocht met vrienden kreeg ik telefoon van Bernadette. Ik geloof dat het de eerste keer was dat mijn kinderen mij hebben zien huilen. Het overlijden van dr. Luc Missault heeft niet alleen op mij, maar op alle personeelsleden van de dienst Cardiologie van het AZ Sint-Jan Brugge-Oostende AV een diepe indruk nagelaten.

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

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.

Robotisch gestuurde katheterablatie van atriale fibrillatie

Percutane katheterablatie Percutane katheterablatie is een vaak gebruikte strategie bij de behandeling van hartritmestoornissen. Er wordt een katheter ingebracht in de lies, die warmte afgeeft in die regio in het hart die verantwoordelijk is voor de ritmestoornis van de patiënt.…

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.
