December 21 is the birthday of the Heart Institute. And the best gift on our solemn day is to be able to give a chance for life.
For transplantation in Lutsk, the recipient in critical condition was transported by ambulance. A 46-year-old woman was so close to death that the defibrillator went off 8 times in the past day. It is a great happiness that a compatible donor appeared for her. On the night of December 20-21, a heart transplant was performed.
Our colleagues also performed kidney and liver transplantation.
We thank the family of the donor, who decided to give a chance at life to other people.
