From March 2013 a unique surgical unit is functioning at the Department of Thoracoabdominal Pediatric Surgery at the Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology. The electrosurgical coagulant (KLS Martin electrosurgical unit Maxium) was bought and suppolied for use by the “Children’s Hospital of the Future” Charitable Foundation.

“We wished to have such a facility for a long time”, says Doctor Oleksiy Slepov, Head of the Department of Correction of Prenatal Disorders. “It gives doctors a chance to perform save surgical interventions. We can now use new technologies for tissue welding and dissection.  More children will be operated successfully with the use of these modern technologies”.

The unit has been fully assembled and is now successfully operating. More than 20 doctors from different departments – pediatric surgeons, endoscopists and obstetricians-gynecologists – have mastered the skills of working with the Maxium electrosurgical unit.

The first workshops took place on March 5, 2013 in the presence of Roland Herzog, the Chief Manager of KLS Martin. He develops such units himself and then improves them in consultations with the physicians. ”This one is the newest model, developed at the end of 2011”, he says. “Its main advantage is it universality. Thanks to the high precision of adjustment it can be used for a wide spectrum of needs. It has 40 operating modes”.

The use of the new electrosurgical device has already led to a decline of the infant mortality rate.

The modern equipment is being delivered to the Institute within the Charitable Program of the “Children’s Hospital of the Future” CF which provides assistance to the state in creating the All-Ukrainian Center of Health Protection of Mother and Child, and in accordance with the Center’s medical program.
