Tonight, our doctors performed another heart transplant.
Step by step heart transplantation is becoming the norm in Ukraine and we are very proud of it.
The operation was successful. S new heart is now beating in the chest of a 53-year-old woman from Volyn. She got a chance for a life thanks to a woman who became a donor. Honor and gratitude to the donor’s family for this difficult decision.
We also thank the staff of the Kyiv Regional Hospital and the police for their cooperation.
