the circulatory system (both the blood itself and the blood-forming organs), the bone marrow and
the lymphatic system. A haematologist specializes in the treatment of blood diseases, in conducting
laboratory tests, developing new methods for diagnosing and preventing pathology.
Although a haematologist primarily deals with blood diseases, it should be noted that often
haematological pathologies are systemic.
The operation of the Hematology department includes the Hematology and Microbiology Laboratories which play a necessary and valuable role in the treatment of hematological diseases by performing the most up-to-date and specialized tests. Also, there is a close cooperation with renowned laboratories of Molecular Biology and Flow Cytometry.
In the Hematology department, the following are performed:
- Chemotherapy regimens of low, moderate and high intensity
- Treatments using monoclonal antibodies (mAbs)
- Transfusions of blood products
Within the Short Hospitalization department:
- Bone marrow biopsies and collection punctures with maximum safety and speed, but also the least organic and psychological burden on the sensitive hematological patient
- Systemic administration of supportive drugs related to hematological diseases
- Systemic administration of newer chemotherapeutic drugs (demethylating agents, proteasome inhibitors) in the context of short treatment regimens
- Monitoring of patients with hemostasis disorders.
In addition, the Hematology department deals with:
- The diagnosis and treatment of patients with congenital and acquired bleeding disorders
- The investigation and treatment of patients with congenital and acquired disorders predisposing to thrombosis
- The monitoring of patients under treatment with anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs
- The monitoring of pregnant women with thrombophilia
- Counseling for patients with new-onset hematological disorders.
