First Ever Brain Tumor Surgery with Highlighting Spray in Krasnoyarsk
June 22, 2017 20:16

Special highlighting spray enables doctors to see more accurately the boundaries of the tumor.
A unique surgery on a cancerous brain tumor with the help of a specially designed spray was conducted in Krasnoyarsk, the regional Ministry of Health reports.
"In Karpovich Regional Hospital, a unique procedure for the removal of a cancerous brain tumor took place for the first time in the Krasnoyarsk Region. The uniqueness of the operation is in using a special spray, optometer, during it" - the department explains.
The spray was developed by specialists of the Krasnoyarsk State Medical University and Canadian scientists on the basis of a DNA-optometer, and its effectiveness is higher than that of existing analogues. The new spray sort of "highlights" the affected areas in healthy tissue, enabling the surgeon to detect even the smallest foci under the microscope.
"This greatly simplifies the work of doctors and, which is the most important, ensures more accurate detection of the actual boundaries of a tumor. Later, after the surgery, this fact drastically increases the patient's chances for recovery," the Ministry of Health pointed out.
The surgery was performed by a neurosurgeon, Professor Andrei Narodov. Presently, the issues of certifying the new spray and its subsequent release on a commercial scale are being addressed.
