Injury

Left leg: implications of open-vertebral and spinal injuries – bruises of spinal cord in the lower thoracic spine. Severe paresis of the left leg.

The course of trauma in the event of non-use of cellular technologies: It has been already a year and a half after injury and operations but restoration of leg function is not observed. Leg muscles are mummifying more and more and the soldier can not lean on the leg and moves on crutches. In addition, the soldier is concerned about severe pain in the back. In case of non-treatment the soldier can remain disabled because of mummified leg, and absence of load will lead to spinal curvature. Nevertheless, neurosurgeon of ilaya Medical Center expects good results of nerves recovery after paravertebral injection of the cell material.

Required treatment: recovery of nerve tissue using cell technologies

The cost of treatment

Cost of treatment including discount of Medical Center in amount of 27% 108 720 UAH

Itemized costs for diagnosis and treatment:

  1. Neurosurgeon’s advice, sampling of cellular material lipoaspirate and punch-biopsy (including 40% discount) – 4600 UAH
  2. Cultivation of MSCs in suspension, 40 million (including 30% discount) – 38 920 UAH.
  3. Neuronal cells, 40 million (including 30% discount) – 49 000 UAH.
  4. Paravertebral injection of cellular material in 2 stages – 16 200 UAH.

Additional paraneural introduction of autologous cells– in the area of the lower leg: 15 180 UAH.
New cost of treatment: 123 900 UAH.

More about wounded

Petro is a soldier of the 80th separate mechanized brigade. He was injured on August 16, 2014 near Luhansk Airport. During the defense of airport from militia fighter, the soldier received numerous missile wounds, among them – an open spinal- cerebrorrhachidian injury.

Once injured Petro was transported to Kharkiv hospital, where the first operation was made, and then – he was sent to Lviv. In a few days after surgery the soldier was able to move his left leg, but the recovery process stopped. The leg of the soldier has no support ability for about 1.5 year.  Thigh muscles are mummified, sensitivity is also disordered. Perto moves with the help of crutches. In addition, he often feels pain in his back.

Valeriia Dubova, who takes care of the wounded in Lviv, helped the soldier to get assistance within the social project “Biotech-Rehabilitation of Injured People”. And neurosurgeon of ilaya Medical Center expects good results of recovery of nerves after paravertebral injection of the cell material. Treatment will take place in three stages: sampling of cellular material and two paravertebral injections after a certain period of time. The result, which is expected – functional recovery of the leg.

Petro is a native citizen of Lviv. Immediately after the service in the army in 2013, he rejoin to volunteer military service, where he became friends with another soldier – participant of our project – Dmytro. They served together; in spring of 2014 they went to the ATO together, they defended their homeland together.

Parents, brother, sister and a large circle of friends are waiting for his recovery – dreaming to see him at the stadium playing football as ever. Let’s help the hero stand again on his own feet!
