Jeju National University Hospital places importance on customers and their lives.

Introduction

Introduction

The department is classified into Cardiovascular Surgery and General Thoracic Surgery. Cardiovascular Surgery practices surgical treatment for heart disease (coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, aortic disease, and congenital heart disease). General Thoracic Surgery performs surgical treatment for pulmonary (lung cancer, pneumothorax), esophageal disease (esophageal cancer, esophageal perforation), and mediastinal tumors. Furthermore, the department provides treatment for chest trauma, carotid artery stenosis causing stroke, hyperhidrosis and varicose vein that affect everyday life, and peripheral artery stenosis resulting in leg pain. Additionally, the department applies Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) to critically ill patients, such as acute myocardial infarction, severe pneumonia, severe heart failure and respiratory failure, and resuscitates the patients. The department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery is the most mandatory in the treatment for the critical patients in a general hospital.

일반 흉부외과는 폐질환 (폐암, 기흉 등), 식도질환 (식도암, 식도천공 등) 및 종격동 종양에 대한 수술적 치료를 시행합니다. 그 밖에도, 외상으로 인한 흉부손상, 뇌경색을 일으키는 경동맥 협착증, 일상생활에 지장을 주는 다한증과 하지정맥류, 하지 통증을 일으키는 말초동맥 협착증 등 다양한 질병을 치료하고 있습니다.
또한, 체외막산화기를 사용하여 급성심근경색, 중증 폐렴, 중증 심부전과 호흡부전 등으로 사망에 임박한 환자를 회생시켜 다양한 치료를 시행할 수 있도록 하고 있습니다. 흉부외과는 종합병원에서 중환자를 치료에 가장 핵심이 되는 전문과목 입니다.
