"This is an artificial heart, which is implanted to patients with the cardiac failure. They need a heart transplantation. This is a complicated question. This is an alternative to the heart transplantation. There are waiting patients. We have planned 60 implantations of the artificial ventricle for this year. If there is a possibility for the heart transplantation it will be done. But since the patient cannot wait for the donor, we do these operations,"- said Yuriy Pya.

"The material and technical base and the personnel make this possible to implement. Everything what is done in the world, also is done here. We as well managed to introduce technologies such as the heart transplantation, which we conducted in August in the last year, and implantation of the artificial accessories when the cardiac failure. And a number of other operations that have not been previously conducted. We plan to make it all available for all Kazakhstanies. We have a plan to help citizens of surrounding countries, but there is still no such possibility, "- said Yuriy Pya.
