On December 15-16, Andrey Petrov, MD, PhD, head of Neurosurgery Department 3 at the Polenov Neurosurgical Institute, gave a second master class on endovascular neurosurgery at the Third State Central Hospital of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, as part of the memorandum on cooperation between the Hospital and the Almazov Centre.
During two master classes, 20 endovascular procedures were performed on complex cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and arterio-sinus fistulae using the most advanced devices for intravascular surgery such as low-profile flow-diverting stents, stents with hypothrombogenic coating, liquid embolic agents.
This cooperation gave rise to the development of intravascular surgery in Mongolia. The first results were reported at the All-Russian Neurosurgery Conference 2018. Further plans are to continue cooperation, trainings and joint courses.
