Savchenko Nikita, 4 months, hydrocephalus

Nikita was born prematurely, during the 8th month of pregnancy and was put in the ICU on AVL right away. He suffered an intraventricular heamorrhage and as a result he got infection of the cerebrospinal fluid, as well as the separation of the ventricles of the brain.

Nikita got a drainage system placed at the Chernihiv regional hospital and last week he was transferred to the Institute of Neurosurgery in Kiev. He needs antibiotic therapy and surgery, for which the mother has no funds at all.
The first surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. It will be an endoscopic one, two combine the separated ventricles and to place the drainage system to treat the inflammation. When the test result will be good, another surgery to place the shunt will be needed.
To save the child we’ll need about 40,000-50,000 UAH ($1,190-2,215), approximately.
