Save A Child from Heart Disease
Please Help Save Nikolai.
Nikolai was born with heart disease.
Nikolai is a five-year-old boy who has had two previous operations. He first had an operation in 2011, followed by a re-operation in 2013. This operation was a RV-PA Conduit augmentation with Cormatrix. His surgery was performed by Dr. Orlov and assisted by Dr. Novick and Dr. Shirokov. Nikolai was taken off of the ventilator just 3.5 hours after surgery. When the team left he was recovering in the ICU.!
The Gift of Life, Inc. and Russian Gift of Life USA are helping to fund medical training missions to Nizhny, where Nikolai was operated. The first mission took place in November 2014.
Nikolai was successfully operated on October 6, 2016.
