Gordey, one of twins, was born prematurely. He was immediately put on mechanical ventilation (ALV) due to unopened lungs and pneumonia. In the age of one month, he underwent a cardiac surgery to close the arterial duct. The trachea and ligaments of the child were damaged by the long-term intubation, so a tracheostomy – a tube through which he breathes – was installed in the age of 2.5 months. Because of this, Gordey has no voice, he has a difficulty to breath, he is very susceptible to diseases, since all the infections go directly to the lungs. Tracheostomy should be cleaned everyday, otherwise the child suffocates.
Gordey and his sister Zlata both have hearing disabilities. Gordey got a cochlear implant. It is difficult for a child to develop with hearing problems without voice.
A successful treatment of the respiratory tract has begun in Ichilov clinic, Israel. They remove a granuloma in the trachea. Now, yet another complicated reconstructive surgery (laryngotracheal plastic) is needed. After this, it will become possible to remove the tracheostomy. The costs of the surgery amount to EUR 65,800.
