21.09.2015: Roman recovering after primary surgery
Roman, 44, a soldier with the 39th armored infantry battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, wounded near Donetske village.
Implications from a right shoulder gunshot wound, nonunion of a multi-fragmental intra-articular fracture of the distal third of the right humerus. Extrafocal osteosynthesis condition of the right humerus with rod type apparatus. Obsolete radial nerve damage. Complex contracture of elbow and radio-carpal joint and joints of fingers.
Roman’s humerus and elbow joint are significantly damaged – traditional medicine could not offer the soldier effective treatment, but stem cell technology will quickly restore the bone and joint, and save the hero from permanent disability.
More information about the wounded:
Roman is a fighter with the39th armored infantry battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk region). He was wounded on December 10 in the Luhansk region, in the Orekhovo-Donetsk district. During combat operations Roman with his fellow soldiers were ambushed by the enemy. After coming under machine-gun fire, from three men only Roman survived.
Doctors gave Roman first aid, after which he was transported to Severodonetsk, where some of the fragments were removed and he was placed in a cast. Further treatment of the fighter took place in Dnipropetrovsk’s Mechnikov Hospital, where his bone was fixed and the wound was closed. Now Roman needs bone restoration. Dnipropetrovsk volunteers learned about the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project and advised the soldier to apply.
