Thanks to its cooperation with the largest and most important Italian hospitals EMS is able to offer a complete
medical logistic assistance service to its patients with the most advanced technologies and treatment opportunities.
Our Partne’s Surgery Department perform operations in laparoscopy are made with the 3D technology.
Laparoscopy surgery is also called minimally invasive surgery. In this procedure a miniature camera and other instruments are introduced in the abdomen by the surgeon through small incisions in order to remove the digestive tract. Compared to the traditional surgery, keywhole surgery maintains a proper visual field for surgeons and, furthermore, minimizes the post-operative pain and speeds up the recovery times.
One of the disadvantages linked to the traditional laparascopy is restricted vision during the operation as well as the difficulty in handling the instruments.
On the contrary, using the 3D technology means going beyond such factors and towards a new surgical approach which merges a three-dimensional view with minimally invasive techniques.
Coronary artery bypass grafting
without extracorporeal circulation
Cardiopulmonary bypass without extracorporeal circulation, more than 90 per cents of treatments are performed in that procedure.
What does without extracorporeal circulation mean? During a bypass operation, the mini ECC techniques provide coronary artery stability, while the hearth keeps on beating, ensuring normal vital signs.
Avoiding extracorporeal circulation is a good solution which results in some clinical advantages.
- It prevents neurological complication
- It prevents adverse inflammatory responses
- It facilitates and speeds up the postoperative clinical outcomes
Mini invasive aortic valve replacement
with sutureless prosthesis
Sutureless prosthetic valve is made of self-expanding and memory-shaped materials, perfectly able to stick to the seat of the original valve.
Avoiding suture stitches considerably speeds up surgery times and recovery times as well. Moreover, it minimizes the post-operative pain in patients of all ages.
According to Agenas, the National Agency of the Ministry of Health which evaluates sanitary services, the mortality rate of Valvular surgery’s operations performed in Fondazione Poliambulanza is verging to zero. Compared to other Italian hospitals, where the mortality rates reaches, on average, the 3 per cent.
Hip and knee prosthesis
With this techinque we can offer a clynica approach based on the princple “the quickest and most direct route to achievement of a goal”.
In the perioperative assistance context it is meant as a path focused on patients and promoting their safety reducing adverse events thanks to anaesthesias and particular surgical sutures.
Moreover, Fast Track is highly effective in order to:
- Minimize blood transfusion
- Achieve optimal pain control thanks to local infiltration analgesia
- Ensure patients’ rapid recovery and early discharge from hospital (from the possibility to assume an erect position on the same day of surgery to the assisted autonomous walking only 2 or 3 hours after the admission to the ward).
Stereotactic radiotherapy is a highly precise technique, used to destroy the tumor with ablative mechanism, while sparing the surrounding healthy tissues. The cycle of treatment with ablative lasers consists of no more than 5 sessions, or even a sole session as for the radiosurgery involving brain tumors.
To achieve the therapeutic effect and reduce to the minimum the risk of further complications, a millimetric precision is required: to this and we combine diverse methodologies, structured around complex equipment.
For example, in case of lung or liver tumors, a breathing control system enables to operate with a particular procedure which involves a stationary target.
On the contrary, in case of targets inside the cranium, we perform a non-invasive but strong immobilization, involving dental amalgam as well.
