Slavic brains to the German technology (continued)
Not so long ago on the "VO" was published my article "Slavic brains to the German technology". It described how the Volgograd orthopedists from the Center for Anthropometric Cosmetology and Correction at the Volgograd Regional Railway Hospital mastered and found a new use for the German surgical navigation complex Ortopilot.
This complex is designed for high-precision operations to install artificial joint-endoprostheses in place of broken knee or hip joints. Volgograd orthopedists have very successfully adapted it for their therapeutic and cosmetic operations to straighten the legs of the legs.
This technology was first tested in the Czech Republic on a Czech patient, and the work itself was funded by the project of scientific and technical cooperation "Eureka" established by the European Union. Then a Czech patient was operated on to stop the development of knee osteoarthritis.
And in April 2017 of the year at the Center for Anthropometric Cosmetology and Correction was performed using this method, the world's first cosmetic leg straightening operation. The patient is a housewife from London, 1986 year of birth. During the operation, she was immediately straightened the bones of the legs and legs right on the operating table with the smallest soft tissue incisions and fixed with the installation of periosteal plates. After that, instead of the usual two months in the Center for correction and rehabilitation, she traveled in a wheelchair for a couple of weeks, then got up and departed to her London. And in July, sent photos of the result. He is wonderful! The legs are slender and look good, because the rehabilitation took place quickly and without Ilizarov apparatus, under which the muscles usually atrophy strongly, which did not happen with this technology. Now the patient has a year left to walk like this to fix the result, and then come to the Center, where the plates will be removed, and then rehabilitation will end in a week, and walk with new legs in life.
I must say that this patient is not an Englishwoman. She and her husband come from Lithuania, immigrants. My husband still speaks Russian, but in his absence the patient had to communicate only in English. In this connection, I am reminded of another case, with another Lithuanian patient ...
In 1996, a patient from Vilnius arrived at the Center for Anthropometric Cosmetology and Correction for a leg straightening operation. It was a woman 38 years, the mistress of a sewing shop, a former athlete-athlete. She spoke Russian fluently, with the slightest accent. She underwent surgery, and after 2 of the month they removed the devices. Looking at the result, the patient froze from discontent. The fact is that the pumped up muscles of athletes under Ilizarov’s apparatus atrophy particularly strongly, moreover, they are rigid, and take a new form much longer and more difficult in accordance with the new form of bones. The patient sobbed almost the whole night, and the next day she left, almost cursing her doctors.
But after 7 months, Dr. Egorov, now deceased founder of the Center, rang the bell. On the wire was a recent patient from Lithuania. She vigorously and joyfully asked for forgiveness for her behavior on departure and reported that her legs had become simply gorgeous !! Egorov asked for photos, she sent them, these photos and now adorn the collection of images of the best results of the Center. And a couple of months later, the same patient reported that she went to work at the US-Lithuanian Center of Cardiology (now he is known throughout Europe!), Told the director her history, and he asked Yegorov to come. Yegorov agreed, and in Vilnius, this cardiac center gave a press conference with him literally with all Lithuanian media and TV. The Center for Anthropometric Cosmetology and Correction now keeps newspapers and magazines in Lithuanian and Russian from this press conference. It was also attended by the Lithuanian follower of Ilizarov, the famous doctor Parvanyackas. He made a statement that there is nothing unusual in Egorov’s technologies, and his team can do it all.
And a month later, another patient came to Egorov from Lithuania, a young girl, by the way, also spoke excellent Russian. She said that when she decided to have an operation for herself, she turned to the cardiology center, and they called Parvanyackas, he came, examined her and locked himself in to confer with his staff for an hour, and then went out and said that they refuse to perform such operations on healthy people (?!). So I left the cardiology center. While this Lithuanian girl straightened her legs, the director of the Vilnius Cardiology Center phoned Egorov, he said that he was negotiating with the Lithuanian Ministry of Health that Egorov would receive a license for his operations in Lithuania, and suggested that Egorov should conclude an appropriate contract with his cardiology center. But Egorov had by that time received similar offers from the Swedes and a large medical center in Texas, so the Lithuanian proposal was rejected.
In conclusion, we can add that the technology with the use of "Ortopilot" dramatically facilitates the lives of doctors with patients and also in what respect. When a person's bones are mutilated (either in war or in civil catastrophes), the patient first goes to traumatologic orthopedists. And they are not up to aesthetics, it is necessary to quickly withdraw from the painful shock, to make maximum disinfection in the bones and to carry out at least some of their restoration. In general, save the patient from death and irretrievable loss of limbs. The result of this is very often severe deformities of the arms and legs. It is in this case that there are simply orthopedic surgeons who already remove bone deformities on the recovered body. There is even a medical oxymoron: to be treated, you must have good health!
Thus, the use of Ortropilot even more relieves orthopedic traumatologists from having to take care of the correct splicing of bone fragments, and orthopedic surgeons can now practically guarantee precise splicing with the necessary build-up in a much shorter treatment time with minimal cuts of soft tissues, with much less loads on the whole body. And strong loads on the body, as is known, shorten his life.
