Help needed for 93rd Brigade soldier Volodymyr

Help needed for 93rd Brigade soldier Volodymyr

Volodymyr, a 36-year-old 93rd Brigade fighter was wounded near the village of Vodyane (Donetsk region). His diagnosis – total loss of the left calcaneus.

Methods traditionally used in orthopedic-traumatology are unable to treat such large defects, so the only treatment the fighter received in state hospitals was the removal of bone fragments and treatment of inflammation. A hospital Volodymyr was transferred to in Germany was also unable to help. The soldier is threatened with permanent disability due to his inability to walk on the injured leg and spinal curvature due to uneven loading on his legs.

Volodymyr requires reconstructive and restorative treatment to his calcaneus to help restore the bone in the foot and maximise function.

Volodymyr, a 93rd Brigade fighter, was wounded on July 12, 2015 while on a reconnaissance mission between the settlements of Yasnobrodivka and Vodyane, both located near Donetsk Airport. Volodymyr struck a mine and narrowly escaped traumatic amputation, which is what would normally be expected with injuries inflicte by a mine.

The soldier was immediately taken to Selidovo, then to Krasnoarmiysk and on to Dnipropetrovsk. Purulent inflammation of his injured leg posed the threat of amputation. However, an Odesa hospital saved his leg – bone fragments were removed and his leg and foot was fitted with an external fixation device. The soldier endured seven surgeries on the injured leg. Over time, the wound healed, but his left foot is non-functional because his left heel is almost completely absent.

Traditional medicine is powerless to treat these injuries. The soldiers was sent to Germany for treatment, but there he also found there was nothing that could be done except have an orthopedic shoe lining moulded. Volodymyr can not walk on the foot, and is plagued with pain at the site of the heel.

Volodymyr is a native of Chernihiv, but has long lived in Kyiv. She has two daughters – aged 5 and 11 years. Before the war he worked at various jobs including repairing computers and was engaged in industrial climbing. Once he considered taking up Thai boxing. The fighter joined the ATO in January 2015. For six months before he was  injured, he performed combat missions near Donetsk Airport. More details can be found in his profile.

Towards Volodymyr’s treatment, 32% of funds have been collected with 344 035 UAH outstanding.
