An 18-year-old patient was admitted to the hospital after a serious accident.
Crimean doctors published a post on the Internet asking for help. The experience of various specialists was required: ophthalmologists, vascular, maxillofacial and plastic surgeons. Doctors from Krasnodar responded to this request.
Recall that a Krasnodar doctor is performing a series of operations on a girl with a "Batman mask". She went through several operations, after which it is already possible to judge the first results.
Ksenia, an 18-year-old resident of Crimea, was involved in an accident. Local surgeons saved her life, but they were unable to cope with the consequences of a severe facial injury. In the accident, the girl lost a third of the area of facial tissues: the bones of the nose, frontal sinuses, the frontal bone of the skull and deep anatomical structures remained exposed. The tissues were necrotic, if the process of their destruction is not stopped, the patient will die. Crimean doctors posted a post on social networks calling for help. But it required the teamwork of many multidisciplinary specialists with advanced knowledge and experience: from ophthalmologists to vascular, maxillofacial, plastic surgeons and resuscitators. Some large medical centers in the country, due to their narrow specialization, could not decide on such a complex integrated approach. As a result, NII-KKB 1 responded to the request of the Crimean doctors, and the victim was transported to Krasnodar. At the council, the head of the burn department, Sergei Bogdanov, proposed an integrated approach. The operation took three stages. First, combustiologists, together with neurotraumatologists, treated the face wound, and angiosurgeons prepared a graft: it was an omentum on a vascular pedicle taken from the girl's abdomen (intestines). His maxillofacial surgeons sewed to the vessels of the patient's neck. And already from such plastic material, burn surgeons, like sculptors, "sculpted" Xenia a "new face". The stuffing box, due to its physical properties, perfectly filled all deep defects. Then the skin "seeded" with fibroblasts was transplanted onto it. These are skin cells grown in the hospital's Science Laboratory. They stimulated skin engraftment and reduced the risk of further scarring. After a long and laborious intervention, the girl underwent recovery procedures for a month in the Burn Center of the hospital. The skin on the face has successfully taken root, the contours of the face have fully recovered: the doctors have achieved a good cosmetic result, the patient is satisfied with her appearance. Today Ksenia works as a medical assistant in Crimea. She comes to NII-KKB 1 for planned corrective surgeries that allow her to return the lost hair on her head.
