Mine-explosive injuries are almost always accompanied by burns. Ukrainian homes and military vehicles, like matches, burn from enemy missiles and bombs. Deep burns of the face and limbs, scars, soft tissue defects - people with such injuries are sent to the Unbroken Center because we are the main burn center of Ukraine.
The Unbroken center has a children’s and an adult department. Our combustiologists and plastic surgeons work together with the best specialists from Italy, USA and Great Britain. Together with them, they implement advanced world technologies. In particular, together with Roberto Brambilla - a surgeon engaged in regenerative medicine - artificial skin was transplanted to a child who suffered from missile fire.
Also there is a Skin Bank at the Unbroken Center. Our specialists are the first in Ukraine to provide skin from a posthumous donor to a one-year-old child with burns.
He was burned during an airstrike in Vinnytsia
7-year-old Roma is the boy who was injured in an airstrike in Vinnytsia in July.
The mother was taking the child to a doctor's consultation when the Russians fired missile into the city center. The woman died. Roma received 45% of burns on his body. The doctors of the Unbroken Center stabilized the child's condition and prepared the boy for transportation abroad.
His clothes burned right on him
His house was on fire when a shell hit it. In order to survive, 75-year-old Mykhailo made his way several meters to the exit through the flames. His clothes burned right on him. With 20% burns of his body, the man was taken to the Unbroken Center.
The surgery is behind. The man's deep wounds are gradually healing. He believes that after recovery he will find his son who was captured by the russians.
