More about the patient

Oleg is a commander of the Aidar battalion unit, B0624 military unit, who received multiple shrapnel wounds on July 27. When, during a military operation near Lutugyne (Luhansk region), the Ukrainian troop position was hit in a tank attack. Oleg was the sole survivor, 10 of his brothers in arms died. Oleg survived only because one of his military friends, 19-year-old Michael, gave his life shielding him.

Oleg received 19 frag-wounds, including to his leg (muscle loss) and arm (loss of muscle, nerve damage). Badly wounded, the soldier lay for a long time among his dead friends. Huge blood loss of threatened his life, but Oleg found the strength to reach the radio and report his location.

On board the helicopter which took Oleg off the battle field, the soldier was twice resuscitated with a defibrillator. Then, until he was stabilized Oleg was in Kharkov before later he was transported to a Kyiv hospital by plane.
The hero recalls the first thing he did when he regained consciousness after seven days in a coma was call his girlfriend Mariyana. The next day when she arrived to visit he proposed to her.


For about six months the hero has been being treated in public health facilities where an external brace apparatus was fitted, however treatment of the bone injuries was not done and they remain unhealed. The injuries include the ununited fracture of thigh and the shoulder defect. These injuries can not be cured by traditional methods. However, the Ilaya medical company has successful experience in the rapid restoration of bone tissue using cellular, or stem cell technology.


Oleg had served in the ATO zone from May 8 and took part in the liberation of Novoaidar and the arrest of 14 separatists during the presidential elections on May 25 during the liberation of Shchastya, when his battalion took a checkpoint before “Metalist” and other strategically important objects. Also among his merits is the capture of 18 members of the special forces “Don” and assisting in the withdrawal of many trapped Ukrainian soldiers.
Before the war Oleg lived in his native Ivano-Frankivsk and studied at the History Department of the Subcarpathian National University. However, due to lack of funds for study, in 2012 he joined the army on contract – serving in the Marine Corps.

It should be mentioned that Oleg took an active part in the Euromaidan revolution joinin on November 18 the last year, when he entered the 18th sotnia. In the drama of February after dressing in a police uniform he ingeniously took from officers two water cannons, which were then brought to the Maidan.

Postoperative follow-up and care

The second major operation


Set-up surgery – bone fistula necretomy with osteomyelitis cavity tamponade using sciatic muscle fragment. Surgery objective is to manage osteomyelitis and create better conditions for the cellular-tissue material injection.




Postoperative care

Dismounting of external fixation device


Oleg underwent dismounting of external fixation device on right humerus – in order to prepare for main surgery on this bone. Now spica cast is put on this leg.



Oleg underwent dismounting of external fixation device, removal of right humerus fragments and adaptive resection, after that in the area of bone defect there was introduced autologous cell-tissue material in three dimensions with a size of 12 cm, fixed by steel plate.
