However, the brave woman decided on a second pregnancy, the first birth was successfully resolved. This time the body could not bear the load. After giving birth, with her aorta dissected, the woman was taken by ambulance to Sklif, where cardiovascular surgeons performed a highly complex open-heart operation and urgently implanted a special prosthesis in her aorta. During the operation, the doctors lowered the patient’s body temperature to 28 degrees and stopped the blood supply for 27 minutes. The meticulous work of surgeons and staff in the operating room lasted 6 hours. Now the health of the young mother is not in danger, she has already been discharged to her home.
