Sixth Heart Transplant at the Heart Institute
On the night of September 3, 2021, a heart transplant was performed at the Heart Institute. This is the sixth transplant in our clinic and the second in the last three days.
In total, our team has performed 15 heart transplants in the last two years. The transplant was performed by Prof. Borys Todurov with a team of doctors of the Heart Institute.
The heart was received by a 43-year-old patient from the Poltava region whose own heart was so affected that only a transplant could save him.
Many thanks to the administration of the Kyiv City Clinical Hospital of Ambulance and especially to Oleksandr Tkachenko.
We are expressing sincere and boundless gratitude to the donor’s relatives who gave permission to take organs to save other people’s lives.
Team of doctors: Gavril Kovtun, Anton Shpachuk, Maxim Taranov, Maxim Khartanovich, Oleksandr Kvasha, Natalia Levina, Natalia Kopilchuk, Oleksandr Revenko.
