Fifth Heart Transplant in a Month
October, 21, 2021
The fifth heart transplant of this month took place tonight at the Heart Institute. It was difficult because the patient has already undergone more than one heart operation. In 2004, he underwent implantation of an aortic valve prosthesis at the Institute, but 17 years later he needed a transplant. The operation lasted 1.5 hours, everything went well.
Director of the Heart Institute Borys Todurov said that now the patient is breathing, smiling, and talking, all indices are normal.
We thank the operational team of the Heart Institute and colleagues from the Kyiv City Clinical Hospital of Emergency Medicine for their cooperation.
Honor and Gratitude to the donor’s family.
