Young man's severed arm sewn and will function normally

February 9, 00:01

The young man's arm, which was severed and detached in an accident,
and then sewn in Yerevan hospital number 1 will function normally, but
this will take time. This forecast is given by the surgeons of the
patient Karo Simonyan, in an interview to the correspondent of NEWS.am

As we found out, the accident occurred on January 27 at a construction
site where Karo Simonyan's arm was stuck between the elevator and the
wall, and then was cut off and fell down from the 11th floor. Rescuers
took him to the hospital during the duty of the assistant of the
department of plastic and reconstructive surgery, plastic surgeon
Abraham Danielyan. According to the doctor, the patient was lucky
enough to appear at the hospital right in time: only 1.5 hours after
the accident he was already in the operating room.

Operation, which was performed by on duty doctor Danielyan, Head of
the Department of Plastic Surgery of Yerevan State Medical University
Artavazd Sahakyan and several other specialists, lasted about 6.5
hours. A few hours later, the doctors discovered that the patient's
veins were clogged up, and the blood supply to the limb was broken.
Immediately another operation was performed, and several veins from
the patient's legs were transplanted into his arm.

Now Karo Simonyan is already in his hospital room, and the doctors say
that his condition is stable, and his blood flow to the hand is fully
restored. He does not want to remember and talk about what happened to
him at the construction site, but looked good, smiling and joking. In
the evening he was expecting an important guest - his girlfriend, and
even prepared a bunch of roses for her.

Simonyan told the correspondent of NEWS.am Medicine that he already
feels tingling and pain in his fingers and is quite optimistic. The
doctors are optimistic, too, but, according to Artavazd Sahakyan, it
will take about 6-8 months until the patient with such an injury is
able to move his fingers. The plastic surgeon Abraham Danielyan thinks
that for complete recovery Karo Simonyan will need about two years.
