Eugen, 25, Dnipropetrovsk region

Wounded near Novoazovsk (fracture of the humerus bone with 20 cm³ loss of bone)



ugene, 25, border guard, injured near Novoazovsk


Supracondylar nonunion fracture of the lower third of the humerus bone with 5cm loss of bone tissue.
Traditional methods for treating this case do not exist. Even by treating the wound with cellular technology his elbow will not bend.

Required treatment

Reconstructive and restorative treatment of the left humerus using stem cell technology.
The soldier needs to undergo at least three stages of treatment, biopsy specimens, bone defect replacement and maximum possible recovery of motion of the elbow joint. Treatment can take two-three months.

More about the patient

Eugene – senior sailor of the border troops. He received numerous injuries on August 31, when his boat was attacked by a criminal group.

It happened when the border guard boat “Greef”, where Eugen served, was patrolling the state border of Ukraine.. Suddenly, from an area of Ukrainian coast, captured by separatists,came heavy artillery fire. Two of Eugen’s comrades were killed. Eugen received numerous injuries – to his hand, spine, left back, and temporal were damaged. For about 40 minutes the fighters were aboard the burning boat and in this time Eugene himself extract several pieces of schrapnel from his body.

The guys were rescued at sea, before the boat sank. The first aid Eugen received was in Mariupol, where a fracture fixation apparatus was applied on his hand. Later, he was sent for treatment to the Odessa hospital for the Border Forces, where the apparatus was adjusted.

It has been five months since the injury occurred, and it has been insufficiently treated (in Mariupol the fixation apparatus was applied, in Odessa the apparatus was adjusted and later removed).

Eugen’s elbow joint is significantly damaged, now his arm bends only 15 degrees . All due to the intra-articular fracture of the lower third of the humerus bone. To restore the joint function by at least 70-80% and to grow the bone, the hard work of an orthopedist and the use of stem cell technology is required. Conventional treatment is useless in such cases. The medical company ilaya is ready to enroll the fighter into the program and do everything possible for Eugen to maintain use his hand.

For five years Eugen has served on contract with the border forces. Previously, he served in Balaklava, Crimea, that was until the invasion of the “little green men”. Then the unit was relocated to Odessa and on April was sent to serve in the ATO.

Eugene was born and raised in the Dnipropetrovsk region, in Nikopol. His family – mother, father and brother – is waiting for him there. One of his hobbies is sports. While still a student Eugen played for his college volleyball team, and took part in marathons. Now it depends on us whether our defender will be able to use his hand to keep living a full life. Let’s help Eugene together!


The treatment in the medical centre completed


The hero starts to develop his hand

X-ray image


In 5 months after main stage of shoulder fracture treatment border guard Yevhen is diagnosed with complete union of the bone.

Apparatus removed


Yevhen had a new X-ray image taken and his apparatus removed on September 16, in 4 months after the main stage of the treatment of his shoulder.

X-ray image


The image clearly shows generation of new bone tissue at the site of injection of 3D gel with chips of osteoplastic material and autologous stem cells as well as a united supracondylar fracture.

Postoperative follow-up and care

Main operation


The main operation was performed – in place of the left humerus defect of Yevhen, autologous mesenchymal stromal cells were inducted.

Postoperative care


Postoperative care in the medical centre



In the area of bone defect there was introduced autologous cell-tissue material

Postoperative period


Care, bandaging

The first operations


Performed operations during the first stage of treatment:
– open osteogenesis of fracture of the upper arm bone;
– extra-focal intraosseous osteosynthesis;
– sampling of cell material (the splint bone fragment and red bone marrow).



Examination, preparation for operation

Chronology of treatment

Control checks

September – November of 2015

control checks and observations, observations under the results of the bone restoring

Apparatus removal

September of 2015

apparatus was removed, the fighter is actively working up his arm and is returning to normal life

2nd Stage of treatment

June of 2015

insertion of 3D-gel with chips of osteoplastic material and autologous stem cells in the place of humerus fracture

1st Stage of treatment

February of 2015

• Cellular material sampling of the red bone marrow from the ilium and a fragment of the periosteum of the calf-bone
• open reparation of the humerus
