Leo Foundation paid for Bohdanchyk's heart surgery, who is 4.5 years old.
Bohdan's diagnosis: perimembranous defect of the interventricular septum. If such a defect is not operated on in time, the heart eventually begins to react poorly to the load and the child can not live a normal life.
Minimally invasive heart surgery is surgery through a mini incision (in the case of Bohdan Honcharuk — 3 cm) between the ribs or along the breastbone, and not through a 25-centimeter incision in the sternum, as in classical surgery. The child does not experience huge stress, has no noticeable scar, and experiences much less pain.
The cost of minimally invasive surgery of congenital heart disease in children in the “Dobrobut”: 110 000 UAH. The operation was performed by cardiac surgeon Oleksandr Babliak.
