Heart Transplant for a 17-Year-Old Girl
Yuliana calls July 8 her second birthday because it was on this day that her transplant took place.
The girl had heart problems, which, if correctly diagnosed, could have been solved by a planned operation. Instead, she received treatment for several years, which only worsened her condition, and as a result, the only solution was a heart transplant.
17-year-old Yuliana was in the intensive care unit of the Heart Institute for a month, waiting for a donor organ.
Yesterday in Lviv, the team of the Heart Institute, together with the team of the “First Medical Association of Lviv,” performed a heart transplant.
We wish Yuliani a quick and effective rehabilitation.
We thank our Lviv colleagues, and we bow to the donor’s family for such an act in such a difficult time.
