English Hospital Will Admit Kirill Muratov in February
On October 30th here on this site, we told the story of Kirill Muratov, an eighteen months old, from Bashkiria. Kirill has Rare Prune Belly syndrome. He needs to undergo surgery at Portland Hospital (London, UK). The cost of the treatment is £165,482. But the Muratov family doesn’t have anywhere near this amount of money. We are happy to announce that the Rusfond (rusfond.ru) has stepped in to help and all the necessary funds have been raised. Kirill will be admitted to the hospital on February 28th. Kirill’s family thanks everyone who has helped. Dear friends, please accept our gratitude as well.
It is dangerous to wait
An operation will save Kiril Muratov's life
Kiril Muratov, 1.5 years old, Rare Prune Belly syndrome. Requires surgery at Portland Hospital (London, UK). 165,482 GBP
I was very happy when I found out I was pregnant, my husband and I were trying for 8 long years for a baby. Even before I gave birth, however, doctors warned us that our child might have kidney problems, and when Kiril was finally born, we found out his health problems were even more severe than originally thought. Our son has poor abdominal muscle development, a condition that gives him problems passing urine and stools, and he has an enlarged bladder and ureters. Moreover, he has two holes in his heart and two cysts were found in his brain. He has been admitted to hospital six times in one year. In Russia we have been offered to undergo non-radical surgery to repair his abdominal muscles and then two separate operations for defects of the genitourinary system- only, these procedures would happen in the space of three years. It is very dangerous to wait such a long time, as kidneys can suddenly stop functioning. In London it is possible to fix these problems all in one go, and in the near future also. If this was possible our son would be healthy and would no longer be disabled. We are unable to pay this procedure, so we ask you to help save our child! Lilia Muratova, Bashkiria.
Patrick Duffy, Children's Paediatric Urologist at Portland Hospital (London, UK): “This child has a serious disease of the genitourinary system, which needs to be treated. We will perform surgery to correct reflux (the reversed direction of urine flow), and it is also necessary to perform plastic surgery on the outer abdominal wall where there is poor development of the abdominal muscles. Then his health will improve significantly.”
