In 2014, A.N. Bakulev NMRCVS set up the world's first Children’s Rehabilitation Center for children with congenital heart diseases. It has its own clinical and instrumental background that allows to conduct and monitor the effectiveness of rehabilitation measures. An individual approach to each child and his/her parents is the basic principle of the CRC professional staff. Parents have a great opportunity to attend school for families of children with CHD. They receive comprehensive recommendations on the further child development, taking into account the surgical intervention.

The Perinatal Cardiology Center at A.N. Bakulev NMRCVS helps women with heart diseases to bear and give birth to healthy children, and save lives of newborns with congenital heart diseases. Highly experienced staff of various areas of expertise such as cardiologists, obstetrician-gynecologists, ultrasound and functional diagnostics doctors work there.

The Perinatal Cardiology Center (PCC) is the only Center in Russia where pregnant women with cardiac pathology and their unborn child get medical screening, care and outpatient and inpatient treatment.

The PCC is the only center in Russia where early echocardiographic diagnosis of CHD and fetal rhythm abnormalities is carried out starting from the 13th week of pregnancy.

The PCC is the only center in Russia that carries out diagnosis and targeted treatment of the fetus with organic heart rhythm disorders.

The PCC is the unique center where intrauterine diagnostics of the cardiovascular system pathology is taught.

The PCC conducts teleconsultations, case conferences, TV-seminars and lectures on intrauterine diagnosis of CHD with different medical and scientific institutions all over Russia.

The range of treatment in PCC

  • Expert echocardiographic diagnosis (EchoCG) of congenital heart disease and fetal rhythm abnormalities starting from the 13th week of pregnancy;

  • Expert obstetric ultrasound and pelvic ultrasound (gynaecological ultrasound)

  • 3D and 4D ultrasound of cardiovascular system in fetal congenital heart disease

  • 3D and 4D fetal ultrasound to exclude combined pathology and ultrasound markers of chromosomal abnormalities;

  • Ultrasound of the abdominal cavity, mammary glands, thyroid gland and lymph nodes;

  • Complete laboratory and instrumental examination of a pregnant woman;

  • Joint prenatal care by a cardiologist and an obstetrician-gynecologist;

  • Identification and treatment of possible pregnancy complications;

  • Complete obstetric and cardiac check-ups and management of women with cardiac pathology to identify the degree of pregnancy risk and childbirth;

  • Contract prenatal care;

  • Pregnancy planning;

  • Treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections;

  • Radio wave method of cervical pathologies treatment;

  • Individual choice of contraception;

  • Diagnosis of endocrine gynecological disorders;

  • Treatment and prevention of diseases with menopause-related symptoms;

  • ediatric gynecology (inflammatory diseases of the vulva and vagina, synechia of the labia minora, menstrual irregularities).

The biggest department of the Center has 77 beds in 24 wards, and there is an intensive care unit (ICU) for 8 beds to treat patients on their first day after transfer from the resuscitation and intensive care unit (RICU) as well as seriously ill patients who require continuous monitoring.

The Department performs interventions of varying degrees of complexity for various congenital and acquired heart diseases. They include operations for cardiac valve disease, for coronary artery lesions (myocardial revascularization surgical and endovascular, transmyocardial laser revascularization), combined valvular and coronary arteries lesions, surgery for congenital heart diseases (ASD, VSD, Ebstein anomaly), surgical treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders (Maze procedure under cardiopulmonary bypass, electrophysiological methods of treatment, implantation of devices, which replace the functions of the heart).

Our surgeons perform successful operations for CHF, including ventricular assist device implantation as well as Shumway`s orthotopic heart transplantation in patients with end-stage heart failure.

The largest department of the Center with the greatest experience in treating patients with congenital heart diseases in Russia has the capacity of 40 beds. For the first time in the country, the department performed on-pump cardiac operation. The department carries out repair of most congenital heart diseases. Annually, it handles more than 1000 congenital heart disease patients.



The department uses a wide range of both surgical and endovascular interventions that allow to handle the most complex congenital heart diseases. They include transposition of the great vessels, transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary artery stenosis, atresia of the tricuspid valve, univentricular heart and others. Surgeries for heart valve repair and replacement are widely performed in congenital disorders. VSD and ASD repair, anomalous pulmonary venous return associated with partial atrioventricular septal defect, Fallot’s tetralogy and others are well-developed common procedures.

Nuclear diagnostics Department , in conjunction with the positron emission tomography imaging Center are working in all main areas of nuclear diagnostics:

  • in cardiology;

  • in oncology (more than 80% of studies are performed), including neuro-oncology, onco-urology and hematology;

  • heart and blood vessels inflammation.



Modern PET diagnostics has a whole range of radiopharmaceuticals with various mechanisms of penetration into the cell and reflecting certain biochemical processes that occur in the body. The possibility to select a specific radiopharmaceutical expands the range of PET / CT applications for various diseases.

The PET center at A.N. Bakulev NMRCVS ranks with the leading European centers based on the range of radiopharmaceuticals used, the methods performed and the number of studies conducted.

Synthesis of the following radiopharmaceuticals is performed at the PET center:

  • 18F-FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose) - used in oncology, cardiology and to diagnose inflammation;

  • 13N-ammonium - used in cardiology;

  • 11C-choline - used in onco-urology;

  • 11C-methionine - used in neuro-oncology;

  • 18F-fluoride - used in oncology to evaluate skeleton condition;

  • 18F-FLT (fluorothymidine) - used in hematology.

These radiopharmaceuticals are synthesized in our own cyclotron-radiochemical complex and undergo a complete quality control immediately before administration to the patient, which is an advantage of the PET center of A.N. Bakulev NMRCVS.
