Update on Oleh and Viktor’s biotech treatment

Update on Oleh and Viktor’s biotech treatment

The primary treatment stage on the foot of 11th battalion of “Kyiv Rus” soldier Oleg is complete.
On March 30 the main operation was performed – placing at the site of the defect of the second, third and fourth metatarsal bones blocks of osteoplastic material with autologous stem cells. Now Oleh has returned home to recover. We wish him a speedy recovery.
We are looking forward to good results in two weeks when he undergoes a control X-ray examination.

It’s hard to believe that recently, the fighter expected disability was inevitable and held little hope for any chance of recovery. Even after rehabilitation in Slovakia, Oleh did not have positive results. In military hospitals he was generally advised to “chill”, after all, Ukrainian men rarely live more than 62 years, and, at 40, with only 20 years left, life with a walking stick was tolerable. At 4o, he was already being scrapped.

Oleh was enrolled in the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project in the summer of 2015. His diagnosis: osteomyelitis of the second, third and fourth metatarsal bones of the right foot, and rumen defect of the anterior right foot. Earlier in the year the wounded soldier had been being treated in hospitals by conventional methods, but because of infection in the bones of the foot he developed osteomyelitis.
Oleh’s treatment in the project began in October 2015, when doctors at ilaya Medical company removed gangrenous bone fragments and performed a series of plastic surgery procedures on the foot. After overcoming the purulent processes cellular technology was used to restore the metatarsal bones.

All the money for Oleh’s treatment was collected online at The People’s Project through the support of caring people. Fundraising for the fighter still ongoing, so anyone can help.





The good news does not end there. Consolidated demining squad soldier Viktor is preparing for the removal of the external fixation apparatus. An X-ray taken five months after his primary surgery, demonstrates active recovery of the bone. In the near future the Ilizarov apparatus will be removed from Viktor’s leg, and instead be replaced with a plaster cast. Next week the fighter returns to the medical center.

Victor was wounded on July 5, 2014 in Slavyansk when, immediately after liberation, Ukrainian troops came under separatist mortar fire. Because this fire collapsed the building in which Viktor was with his fellow soldiers. A piece of rubble fell on his leg and seemingly fracturing it. Because once wounded, the soldier did not receive proper treatment, the broken bones became infected leading to the fighter undergoing about 30 operations. Then doctors tried to restore the soldier’s defect via conventional methods, but eventually were forced to “clean” the injury site, and do repeat this several times. In addition, soft tissue in Viktor’s leg became infected and the hero was threatened with amputation.

Then volunteers Olha Tkachenko and Natalia Zavadskaya put Viktor in contact with the coordinators of the social project Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded. Without question Viktor was accepted by  the project. Then, still in the Central Clinical Military Hospital, Viktor was enrolled to treat his orthopedic trauma at the ilaya Medical Center by Vladimir Oksymets. In August 2015 joint operations were conducted as the first step to saving Viktor’s leg – doctors stopped the destruction of bone and prepared for the restoration of bone and tissue.
Then, doctors performed plastic surgery to overcome problems with the soft tissues – and the bone was treated by Ilizarov technique. Within three months, for the first time in more than a year of treatment in hospitals and clinics, the extensive wound closed completely and processes to restore bone started. In late October 2015, Viktor underwent a comparison of the tibia – three months after fitting of the Ilizarov and complete closure of wounds in soft tissues.
Money for the treatment of Viktor is already collected, and The People’s Project continues to raise funds for other fighters. Your help is essential to Ukraine’s heroes.
