Patient detailed informationbez-imeni

Yuriy was injured during combat mission: with the purpose of carrying out of assailants checkpoints location reconnaissance Yuriy was landed from a helicopter into the forest. Soon he fell into an ambuscade – firing started, in result of which he got numerous injuries and lost a lot of blood. Fellow soldiers took Yuriy out the forest in a serious condition and referred by helicopter to Kharkov; subsequently he was transferred to Kyiv Military Hospital in Kyiv – just here he recovered himself.

Due to spine fragmentation Yuriy undergoes treatment for the last three months in Kyiv and cannot walk. In addition, as a result his liver was affected. Another serious injury is severe humerus damage, which can lead to loss of hand functioning and complications. This injury requires treatment using cellular technology – this method will help to restore promptly the bone and preserve hand.

Yuriy is a professional soldier, who spent 10 years of his life defending the homeland. Recently, he served in one of the Kirovograd military units under contract, from where was sent to ATO area. His family –two children, wife and parents – are waiting for him at home.

Second X-ray


3 months after basic surgery of Yurii doctors of medical center ilaya ascertain the complete fusion of the introduced cell material and the integrity of the humerus. New, second X-ray picture of fighter hand was made in May this year.

First X-ray


Doctors of medical center ilaya highly appreciate the regeneration of the humerus of Yurii after observation of X-ray pictures, made 1.5 months later after treatment. In particular, at these pictures there can be observed the integration of material with bone tissue of humerus fragments.

Postoperative period


Main stage of treatment


The principal humerus surgery was carried out on February 6. During the surgery doctors removed the rotational component, prepared the recipient bed and administered the autologous cell and tissue material in the form of a bone block fixed using an LCP plate. According to the doctors, if necessary, Yuri will undergo arthrodesis of the radial wrist joint over time.
