Ukrainian military medics performed a unique operation to remove a kidney. It has no analogs in the world
Ukrainian military surgeons operated to remove a kidney with a gunshot wound that had caused organ destruction — such an operation has no analogs in the world.
“We have good news that we can be proud of the Medical Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Last week, for the first time in Ukraine, a modern laparoscopic operation was performed at a military mobile hospital in one of the frontline cities — removal of a kidney with a gunshot wound causing organ destruction,” Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Hanna Maliar said.
Two such operations have already been performed in the mobile hospital; the wounded are already walking around the ward. Maliar clarified that such operations for combat kidney injury have no analogs in the world.
