A complex surgical procedure for the removal of liposarcoma - a rare type of tumor of large dimensions was successfully performed in the Military Medical Academy, thanks to the multidisciplinary approach to treatment. 

A record-breaking baby was born: Twice as heavy as the others, 5 kilos and 600 grams

A 51-year-old patient is stable, she was discharged from the hospital for further house treatment.

In the case of a patient in the MMA, a tumor of 50 cm in diameter and about 18 kg in weight was localized in the abdomen.

Although it is considered that the most effective treatment for liposarcoma is surgery, the risky surgical procedure for removing tumors of these dimensions was further complicated by the presence of large blood vessels and abdominal organs.
