First Heart Transplantation at the Heart Institute
For the first time, heart transplantation was performed at the Heart Institute. This was the fourth heart transplantation in Ukraine.
The operation was performed by Professor Borys Todurov with a team of doctors from the Heart Institute.
The heart was transplanted to 62-year-old Petro from Kyiv, whose own heart was so affected that only a transplant could save him.
Many thanks to colleagues from the Kyiv Ambulance Hospital.
Sincere and boundless gratitude to the relatives of the patient who gave permission to take organs to save other people – in addition to the heart a liver and two kidneys from he same donor were transplanted to other patients.
