(electrophysiological studies). These are procedures that are not made in the country and that are donated in different U.S. hospitals.
The procedure involves the introduction of a device that triggers high frequency electromagnetic waves that allows to discover which cells produce irregular heart beats and then destroys (ablate) the conduction pathways responsible for arrhythmias.
It’s a relatively new procedure that avoids open surgery and allows a child’s recovery in the shortest time. Besides being considerably less cost than surgery. The waiting list at Bloom Hospital for this procedure is over 60 children.
Currently, we have sent 12 children, from a list of more than 50 children that are on a waiting list. So we are looking forward to continue sending more. We also have offers of different hospitals and organizations in the United States and Europe, to expand our efforts to other specialties as orthopedics, neurology, urology, etc.
