Re­mote guid­ance for surgery in Xin­jiang

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Doc­tors from Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal of Fu­dan Univer­sity and Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal of Urumqi fin­ished two min­i­mally in­va­sive surg­eries for con­gen­i­tal heart dis­ease in Xin­jiang Uyghur Au­tonomous Re­gion un­der the re­mote guid­ance of ex­perts in Shang­hai on Wed­nes­day, Xin­min Evening News re­ported.

It was the first such case in China. The live video was trans­mit­ted from Urumqi to Shang­hai through the in­ter­net, which made it pos­si­ble to pro­vide guid­ance at a dis­tance of 5,000 kilo­me­ters.

This kind of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two ci­ties not only helps pa­tients in Xin­jiang, but also pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal doc­tors to learn the lat­est and most ad­vanced tech­niques. Since 2010, the Shang­hai hos­pi­tal has dis­patched doc­tors to Urumqi to pro­vide high-qual­ity med­i­cal ser­vices to lo­cal chil­dren.
