Cardiológico Infantil realiza 90% de cirugías del corazón

El Cardiológico Infantil Latinoamericano, ubicado Montalbán, Caracas, realiza actualmente más de 90% de las intervenciones quirúrgicas a menores de edad con cardiopatías congénitas o problemas del corazón de todo el país, informó la presidenta de la institución, Isabel Iturria.

Iturria señaló que el sector privado realiza menos de 10% de las cirugías infantiles en esta área, lo que en parte se debe a los precios excesivos que las clínicas o especialistas colocan a este tipo de operaciones, los cuales alcanzan 6 millones de bolívares, mientras que el Cardiológico logra realizar las intervenciones con un costo inferior a los 2 millones de bolívares por menor de edad, coste que es asumido totalmente por el Estado.

Asimismo resaltó que las instalaciones del Hospital, que fue fundado en 2006 bajo el gobierno del presidente Hugo Chávez, están diseñadas para la atención integral de los pacientes, los cuales superan los 10 mil 400 atendidos.
