Russian doctors save the life of a young woman with a rare genetic disease : Vesti

Cardiac surgeons at the National Medical Research Center in Novosibirsk have performed a complex life-saving surgery on a young woman with a rare circulatory disease caused by a genetic mutation.

The doctors at the center indicated that the girl who underwent the operation was 24 years old, and she was diagnosed with a rare disease resulting from a genetic mutation, called chronic thrombotic pulmonary hypertension. As a result of this condition, the patient suffers from recurring bouts of pulmonary embolism and breathing difficulties. He developed clots in his pulmonary arteries, so he required surgery to restore the young woman's heart and lungs to function.

Doctors stated that such health problems often occur in people who suffer from antiphospholipid syndrome, which is a hereditary disorder that leads to high blood viscosity and thus blood clotting, and that the patient suffered from such symptoms after suffering repeated miscarriages, and was prescribed blood-thinning medications. But her health condition worsened recently, and she began to suffer from chest congestion, pain when breathing, and suffocation attacks, so she was diagnosed with chronic thrombotic pulmonary hypertension, and surgeons were forced to perform a complex surgery to save her life.
