Continued support leads to more-tailored care

Dmitriy Terekhin (born 2013, Tula), who received a preliminary diagnosis of occlusive hydrocephalus, has continued to receive our support. For a duration of four months, until March 2014, Dmitriy was under the care of Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery in Moscow. Test results indicated an active inflammatory issue, which steered the treatment towards that for Meningocephalitis, for which ventricular drainage was necessarily re-installed as required.
After Dmitriy’s condition improved, the decision was taken to perform shunt surgery. Neurosurgeons inserted a special tube called a ‘shunt’, through which the excessive volume of cerebrospinal fluid captured in the brain can be diverted into another area of the body, usually the abdominal cavity. Currently, Dmitriy is at home undergoing rehabilitation and is developing and progressing as expected for his condition.
