Improving complications: volunteer project tries to restore wounded fighter’s legs

Improving complications: volunteer project tries to restore wounded fighter’s legs

Here is the latest news about Vitaliy: we have not written a word about this courageous and nice man for about a year. Within the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project, we are trying to save the guy’s both legs that had been heavily cut in an artillery mine explosion. The main process has been lasting for about three years in a row: healing goes rather not as fast as it was expected, even if to take into consideration the man’s general health condition.

The year of 2015: this is how Vitaliy’s legs looked like when he joined the Biotech

Vitaliy got injured in 2015, when the forces of the 93rd Brigade attempted to unblock the Defenders at Donetsk airport surrounded by russian troops. During an attack the enemy shelled our fighters using artillery. One mine exploded just in front of Vitaliy’s legs, and the shrapnel cut the man’s limbs severely.

This is a real picture taken on the spot: medic Olha Bashei is trying to save Vitaliy’s life and legs immediately following the injury

The man got severe legs defects; his muscles gone smashed out and blood vessels cut. Renovation of the limbs was out of the question; after a number of difficult surgeries that proved ineffective, doctors at Ukrainian and, later, foreign hospitals unanimously reached the conclusion that to avoid inevitable pathological processes Vitaliy’s legs had to be amputated.

And this is how Vitaliy’s legs look now

It would not be true if we said the healing process went smoothly. Within the Project, Vitaliy probably has the most complicated injuries. So his restoration is supplemented with complications as well. Vitaliy’s organism got exhausted by heavy wounds, so even despite application of cell technology the bone tissue grows up slowly. Another reason behind the untimely restoration is the lack of blood circulation in the area: due to heavy damage of the soft tissue and blood vessels, the circulation of blood in the legs is rather poor, which results in deceleration of their healing.

This fragment of the restored bone is to be reinforced by implantation of additional cell materials

Still, there are chances for full recuperation, and they seem rather big. That is why we are going to do our best to help Vitaliy. In late February the guy underwent another surgery: the examination revealed that the left shin failed to amass solidity to due extent. Previously, the fracture did not fuse up right as well; still, over some time, the bone fused up but did not gain due hardness. So doctors had to insert special biological implants, that is carriers bearing the patient’s own stem cells, into the defected area of the left shin. Eventually, they will convert into the bone tissue aimed to support the defected area.

The bone is being dissected to re-grow it again under close control straightening it in full accordance with the leg’s natural axis

Later, the doctors performed another surgery on Vitaliy’s right leg: they dissected the tibia, re-assembled and arranged it in the correct natural position, and then fixed the limb with Ilizarov apparatus. The leg fused up, but the bones took a somewhat wrong position. Still getting the limb straightened once again seemed untimely then. Now when Vitaliy was strong enough to undergo another surgery, the time to restore his limb to its natural condition and take the whole recuperation process under close control, has come.

Of course, additional medical intervention, especially such a scaled one that Vitaliy have just had, unavoidably lead to extra expenses. All these can be seen in our reports on the Project. Most likely, new expenses can follow soon: we, the volunteers of People’s Project, just cannot cease supporting Vitaliy – on the contrary, we are eager to bring his treatment to its logical finale. Besides, there are other participants of the Project who need our support as well. That is why we repeatedly urge you to join in the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project and support our fighters as much as you can: sometimes even a few hryvnias of your donations can radically change the life of a wounded guy to the better.
