The First Heart Transplant in Kropivnytskyi

09-12-2023

The team of the Heart Institute is expanding the map of transplants in Ukraine and performed the first heart transplant in Kropyvnytskyi with colleagues from the regional hospital.
A 58-year-old man from the Kyiv region, who suffered from ischemic cardiomyopathy, received a new organ. The patient fought for his life for more than a year, suffered several heart attacks, and was stented. But the condition kept getting worse.

His queue for a transplant lasted one year and he waited for it. Currently, the patient is already in the Heart Institute and undergoing rehabilitation. A team of doctors monitors his condition 24/7.

We admire such a zest for life and indomitability. We wish the patient a speedy recovery and hope to record a Christmas video together very soon.
We thank the family of the donor, who decided to give another person a chance at life. Blessed memory and a low bow.

The Heart Institute’s team:
Prof. Borys Todurov, Gavrilo Kovtun, Sofia Chaikovska, Dmytro Loskutov, Serhiy Sudakevych, Mykola Melnyk, David Shabanov, Diana Kovalenko.
Transplant coordinator Anna Melnyk.
