Among the men who were X-rayed this week X-ray is Kirovograd paratrooper Valeriy.
One-and-a-half months ago, an operation was performed – corrective osteotomy to his radial and ulnar bones with metal osteosynthesis plate blocking. For effective progress in the fusion process, the doctor recommended the soldier exercise his hand. Once hand motor function has been detemined, Valeriy will undergo surgery on the tendons in his hand.
The soldier was wounded on August 29, 2014, when evacuating the cauldron that was the battle for Ilovaisk. Valeriy’s diagnosis: as a consequences of explosive shrapnel, injuries to his right forearm, improperly spliced fractures of the distal third of the right forearm from elbow, deformity and scar contracture to the right combination radio-carpal joint and fingers. During 10 months of treatment with traditional methods, the bone accretion process took a long time, and after the fusion of the forearm bones led to deformity, it has significantly affected functions of the fingers and carpal joint, which did not allow the man to use his hand.
