29.03.2016: Sviatoslav completes primary stage of treatment
28.07.2015: First stage of Svyatoslav's treatment completed
17.07.2015: Svyatoslav’s treatment to begin soon
Sviatoslav, 46, a volunteer of Donbas battalion, shot in Ilovaisky.
Implications of gunshot wound of left shoulder, a defect of the proximal third of the left humerus of 8 cm. Sviatoslav is missing the part of the bone that forms the shoulder joint.
The progress of his injury in the event of non-use of cellular technology meant six months from the date of his injury conventional medicine could not offer more effective treatments than arthrodesis of his shoulder joint or arthroplasty of his humerus – but such methods in this situation would lead to a significant loss of function to his left hand, causing permanent disability.
More about the wounded soldier:
Sviatoslav is a volunteer with the Donbas Battalion, received a gunshot wound to the shoulder on August 19 when he, together with fellow fighters stormed Ilovaysk committee building where the separatists had located their headquarters.
That day, during street fights, the soldiers of Donbas came under strong fire with small arms. Three of his fellow soldiers were killed, and about 10 injured. Sviatoslav lost a lot of blood, and on the battlefield he applied a tourniquet. Then Sviatoslav was sent to a hospital in Dnipropetrovsk.
The treatment of comminuted fracture of the humerus lasted about 4 months in several hospitals. Sviatoslav endured 6 operations: first fracture fixation was performed and subsequently spent immersed fixation, but because of complications – osteomyelitis firearm – had to remove gangrenous portion of bone, bone graft and metal.
Now Sviatoslav needs treatment of bone defect that is due to the complications reached 8 cm in length. Restoration of such large part of the bone can only be performed by cellular technology that is successfully used by the doctors of ilays medical center.
Sviatoslav joined ATO on July 11 last year. During the fighting had to take part in the liberation of many settlements of Donbas, including – City Popasna, Lysychansk and Ilovaysk.
In peacetime, Sviatoslav is a furniture maker and lives in Odesa, where his son Zoreslav awaits him.
Sviatoslav was never indifferent to events in Ukraine. It should be noted that he is a member of All-Ukrainian Union “Svoboda”, and participated in the events on the Maidan during the Revolution of dignity.
reconstructive and restorative treatment of shoulder injury using cellular technology that enables maximum possibilities to restore the function of the left hand.
Doctors task: in fact to restore 5 types of tissue: bone, cartilage, tendons, muscles, and start the process of angiogenesis, as required for the treatment of Sviatoslav twice that number of cells than is commonly used in our project – this requires much more time and funds .
