The Biotech’s first patient came to clinic on his own feet

The Biotech’s first patient came to clinic on his own feet

Dear friends, today we are going to tell you a truly good news. Recently an uncommon visitor visited ilaya clinic. The man’s name is Yuriy, and he is the very first patient of the «Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded» project.

At that time, three years ago, we themselves were not sure of success. The first patient and such severe injuries. We had a number of questions that remained unanswered – would it be possible to save the arm, were there any chances to get the man recovered and could people trust such sizeable sums for treatment to volunteers?

At the very beginning, nobody was convinced that Yuriy’s nearly paralyzed legs would be able of performing on their own. Now the man walks independently, using a cane from time to time

For the moment, there was only one doctor possessing appropriate experience of work with severe wounds – Mr. Volodymyr Oksymets: before the war Volodymyr Mykhaylovych used to perform surgeries on injured miners and people traumatized in serious car accidents. This explains why he started treatment of wounded fighters with firm confidence in both his own skills and convincing potential of cell technologies.

Yuriy is a professional military, a fighter with the legendary 3rd Separate Special Forces (Spetsnaz) Regiment based in Kropyvnytskyi. The disaster struck in 2014, during their reconnaissance outing in the Donetsk region. The man got ambushed, and under fierce gunfire his body gone severely cut which resulted in a massive blood loss. Comrades immediately evacuated the guy from the battlefield, and in a short period of time managed to get him transported to Kyiv central military hospital. The examination revealed that his spine was severely traumatized which led to paresis of the legs, that is pathologic weakness bordering with paralysis. Apart from this, the gunshots hit his liver and smashed out the shoulder bone.

This is an initial mess the doctors managed to get restored with application of cell technologies

At certain moment, specialists of the Biotech joined the central hospital’s medics for co-operation. During the entire course of treatment, Yuriy underwent three main stages of restoration: firstly, cell materials were inserted into his body to strengthen the organism and speed up healing processes in its other parts. The second phase included implanting of cell materials into the damaged areas of the spine: within a ceratin period of time, the sensibility of one and, later, of both legs was restored; today the man can walk on his own legs quite well. Besides, treatment of Yuriy’s arm proved effective, too: usage of cell materials allowed to fuse up the remains of the bone and substitute about 12 cm of the defect.

Now, three years afterwards, the check-up verified that the bone fusion went perfectly well, and implanted cells formed a solid bone mantle throughout the fractured area which improved solidness of the bone. Now it is time for rehabilitation. Due to the complicatedness and seriousness of Yuriy’s trauma, his elbow joint still remains limited in its functionality a bit, and some movements are impossible to perform.

Under the doctors’ guidance and with professional advice as regards exercising, Yuriy has all the chances to overcome remaining limitations on his own. If there are any hindrances to it, Volodymyr Oksymets is ready to carry out all necessary adjustments in the rehabilitation process.

In our turn we, the People’s Project‘s volunteers, are sincerely grateful to each sympathetic person who supported us and at whose expense we managed to be helpful in Yuriys’ recovery. Unless your faith and kind-heartedness, he would have been doomed to a different lifestyle. With your generous support we raised necessary funds that made over 300,000 UAH, and paid for the wounded fighter’s treatment, in time. Thanks to our shared efforts this nice smiling guy is able to embrace his kids with his own arms, and is cherishing some wonderful plans for the future. Yuriy is the Biotech’s first but not the last, patient. So we urge you to join and support «the Biotech‘s» work, because together, with our eagerness combined, we are bringing our wounded to normal life.
