Practical collaboration with “Erebouni” Cardiology Centre in Yerevan, lead by Prof. Hamlet Hayrapetyan, and Cardiac Surgery Department, lead by Dr. Vahe Gasparyan, started in February 2015. Numerous patients have been examined. Interdisciplinary treatment options have been discussed and the final procedures defined. In addition first cardiac surgeries have been carried out all resulting in successful outcome.
During the December 2015 mission, a patient with proximal marfanoid aortic aneurysm, severe combined bicuspid aortic valve disease and acute endocarditis with complete aorto-ventricular disconnection has been operated successfully.
The promising start of this cooperation proves the concept of on-the-spot cooperation as well as the value of international cooperation
