Second Heart Transplant in Lutsk
This is the second heart transplant performed by Prof. Borys Todurov with a team of doctors from the Heart Institute together with colleagues from the Volyn Regional Clinical Hospital.
32-year-old Volodymyr from Kyiv received the heart.
A trip from Kyiv to Lutsk was needed because the donor was in Lutsk, and it was not possible to deliver the donor’s heart from there to Kyiv. Therefore, our team together with our patient headed to Lutsk where the transplantation was carried out that night.
Currently, the patient has a new heart and is doing well.
Sincere thanks to Oleksandr Dudar, director of the hospital, and everyone involved for their cooperation
Deep condolences and great gratitude to the donor’s family – thanks to their decision, 4 lives were saved – 2 kidneys and a liver were also transplanted.
We particularly owe it to to the armed forces of Ukraine that we have the possibility to do our job.
