International video conference - important step for transplantation

On February 16, 2012 the first international video conference on regenerative medicine headed by the leading scientist professor Paolo Macchiarini took place in Clinical Regional Hospital after prof. Ochapovsky within frames of the grant money of the Government of the Russian Federation. Russian and foreign hospitals took part in this conference: Stokholm – Huston – Krasnodar – Florence – Moscow. Possibilities of  bioengineered tracheal transplantation for patients with diseases of upper airways were discussed during this online conference. Karoliska Institute (Sweden, Stockholm) represented one patient. Specialists from National Research Centre of Surgery named after B.V. Petrovsky, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Moscow, represented case of the patient who had cadaveric tracheal transplant. Surgeons of University Hospital Careggi (Florence, Italy) also represented one patient; and surgeons of Texas University (USA) offered two candidates, including one child.

Thoracic surgeon,  Deputy Head Doctor of Clinical Regional Hospital 1 I.S. Polyakov who is responsible for preparing working with the patients to the upcoming transplantation reported results of instrumental evaluations: CT and bronchoscopy of two candidates. Candidates were discussed by leading specialists of participating countries. Everybody could share his opinion  about treatment process and case management.

Several transplantations of nanocomposite trachea seeded by autologous mesenchymal cells of patient are planned within this project. For the present moment preparing work is under way.
