Russian Federation : Children's neurosurgeons of Traumatology Hospital Surgut saved the life of a newborn child with a very rare brain pathology.
A newborn girl went to the doctors of the Surgut hospital of Surgut from Nefteyugansk at the age of ten days. The child had an extremely rare pathology of the brain.
The survey showed that you can not delay - the girl had a hemorrhage, which increased the ventricles of the brain, - said Elena Bogoslovskaya, head of the children's neurosurgical department of the Surgut Clinical Traumatology Hospital. - An extensive hematoma is located in the immediate vicinity of the brain stem, where the respiratory and vasomotor centers are located. Because of the limited space around the brain stem, the accumulation of blood quickly leads to disruption of vital functions. Hemorrhage in the posterior cranial fossa in newborn children often ends tragically, statistics show that the lethal outcome with this pathology occurs in most cases.
Doctors understood that every hour is important. Less than a day was for neurosurgeons to make a decision about the further tactics of treatment.

N. Burdenko, promptly conducted a telemedicine bridge. It is worth noting that this case surprised even experienced specialists from Moscow.
After a joint discussion and careful analysis on the same day, the girl was operated on, which became her salvation.
We knew that the child needed to operate, were ready for a high degree of complexity of the intervention, - said Elena Bogoslovskaya. - Understood that virtually any operation in children is associated with blood loss, but for this child it was unacceptable.
A short operation was successful, immediately after the intervention of neurosurgeons noted significant improvements in the baby. According to doctors, the hemorrhage regressed, the cerebrospinal fluid from the ventricles of the brain recovered, consciousness and breathing became normal, intracranial pressure normalized.
At present, the baby is already at home, after birth for the first time with pleasure, tries breast milk and actively adds weight.
