For the first time in Armenia chemotherapy was carried out to the patient with transplanted kidney.
A 64-year-old patient A.A., at the beginning of May applied to Department of Chemotherapy of MC Erebouni for the course of chemotherapy after the pancreatic cancer surgery performed in one of the specialized clinics in Munich. Patient was directed to MC Erebouni at the insistence of doctors from Germany as one of the leading multidisciplinary medical centers in Armenia.
The patient had a complicated anamnesis: kidney transplantation (2014.), Hepatitis B, meningoencephalocele. Common practice around the world is that patients with transplanted organs constantly receive immunosuppressive therapy. Carrying out chemotherapy in such cases is extremely difficult, and requires a special approach, since it is possible not only complications, but also the rejection of the transplanted organ.
The main goal of the chemotherapy for such patients is to achieve the desired antitumor effect without causing significant harm to the body.
After examinations, in order to avoid all the above, the patient was prescribed and carried out antiviral, antibacterial, gemostimulating therapy.
In 18.05.2018 for the first time in Armenia the patient with transplanted organ was carried out chemotherapy by the Head of Department of Chemotherapy of MC Erebouni, Chief Oncologist of Yerevan Dr. Haykuhi Geokchyan, MD.
The patient is in satisfactory condition and continues to receive adjuvant chemotherapy.
