Adult Cardiac & Congenital Heart Surgery Mission
Santo Domingo, DR
The International Missions Committee representing CardioStart is pleased to announce the mission to Clinica Corazones Unidos Hospital in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This mission will focus on ADULT patients.
Brigid Scanlan Eiynck died recently, and up until her death, was a senior Vice President for the prestigious company Scanlan International, considered to be the finest surgery instrument maker in the world.
This mission was CardioStart’s 5th adult cardiac surgery mission to Clinica Corozonas Unidos, in Santo Domingo. HeartCare Dominicana, Inc. facilitated the team’ presence during the week and arranged for patients to be seen for this humanitarian surgical program. Several complex valve repairs/replacements were performed with intensive involvement with the local team. Unique to this hospital, two Off Pump Coronary Artery Bypass cases were done. One Atrial Septal Defect repair was carried out using an Amplatz device. All cases were successful.
