Timely intervention for a 5-month-old child with renal failure

Alexey Cheskovskiy, Belgium Medical Company Deputy Director and METACO Board of Directors member received a request from nephrologists of a local hospital for charitable assistance during a business trip to the outpatient dialysis centre in the city of Nazran (Ingushetia, Russia).

This aid was needed for a 5-month-old boy who was admitted in critical condition diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, chronic renal failure, as well as hypochromic anaemia. The child’s urgent need for peritoneal dialysis catheter insertion required paediatric surgeons with experience in this procedure, which could not be provided by the local hospital, so Chesnokovskiy championed the cause.

Thanks to Cheskovskiy’s personal intervention, the coordinated actions of experienced doctors and cutting-edge equipment employed, the child’s acute renal failure was compensated and it is planned for the boy to be admitted to a specialised paediatric nephrology department for follow-up care.
