The Children Cancer Foundation pledged a donation to the Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County Hospital Paediatric Surgery Department with a total value of 41 million HUF. The amount will be used for the purchase of high value laparoscope and endoscope devices; furthermore the outdated lighting equipment in the operating theatre will also be changed. By the development of the medical device range paediatric surgery care has been expanded by new therapeutic opportunities.
The laparoscope devices significantly reduce the operational burden on the patients, as isntead of long excavating operations involving cuts in the abdominal wall the operations can be carried out now through a tiny wound of few millimetres. After the operation pain is minimised and children have to spend less time in hospital and recovery time is significantly reduced.
The new endoscope tower and endoscope devices represent the currently available most up-to-date technology. The HD resolution camera and monitor enable the accurate separation of cancerous and healthy tissues within the operated area, thus the surgical interventions are more accurate without causing significantly less damage to the healthy tissues. The Foundation has also purchased the smallest possible endoscope devices for operations to be carried out on newborn babies and infants without cutting the abdominal wall.
In the surgical operating theatre a new, state-of-the-art lighting device equipped with a high-resolution central camera was also added as part of the donated package, which replaced a 30 year old, outdated lighting equipment.
