Now to good news, dear friends! First, Vitaliy, our patient about whom we told you just a couple of days ago, has undergone a major and sophisticated surgery. This happened within the additional phase of treatment in the course of which the doctors dissected the hip bone and mounted an apparatus of external fixation onto it. Over the nearest months they are going to gradually stretch the bone out by means of this traditional method.
May we remind you that Vitaliy is a hero volunteer who got his third, the heaviest, injury near the village of Pisky, in the Donetsk airport vicinity. Then the guy had been captured by terrorists which resulted in complications in his treatment. It was only after a few months after his liberation when Vitaliy got into the hands of Ukrainian doctors. Still the time had gone: the doctors did not succeeded in either fusing the bone up or in overcoming infection. It was within the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project when doctors cleared the beds of infection, put the leg into its natural position and tried to fuse up the complicated fracture by means of application of cell technology. To be honest, the didn’t quite succeed in it as due to metabolism and restoring processes intensification, the sleeping infection stroke up again at some moment. This resulted in ruining of all the doctors’ hopes.
Still the next stage within which Vitaliy’s organism restored a bit and regained some energy necessary for the following treatment, has brought certain positive results. The doctors manages to overcome the infection, and fused up the remains of the bone using traditional methods. But the leg remained shorter for 6cm destroyed by the shotgun injury and the damage caused by infection. And right now, at this very moment, the doctors are going to stretch the bone up to its natural length by means of traditional method of treatment.
Now to the second important point. We always reiterate that your reposts and sharing the information are very important. People share the information, and the help comes. Recently, some kindhearted contributors from the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada sent us $1200 for Vitaliy’s treatment. This was rather a substantial input that covers the major part of the amount needed to pay for the next stage of Vitaliy’s treatment. Still, it would be too early to celebrate: another part of the sum we still need to raise. As we can pay for the doctors’ work and enormous efforts at the expense of your donations solely.
That’s why we urge you to further participation in the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project. Dear friends, please come in as we have some more expenses to cover. But surely we cannot leave our this nice guy, our true defender who volunteered to the army to protect our homeland, to face his troubles on his own, can we?
