FRANCE: Drama turned into a happy and successful story
After doctors in Nice succeed to do dialysis on Asima Zero, they managed to do surgery on this 33 years old girl from Sarajevo, since early morning, with goal to establish vascular access, what was the reason why we urgently have to transport Asima to France, because after twenty years of dialysis in Bosnia and Herzegovina, using old vascular access was almost impossible. Doctors in B&H signed a consultative opinion that there was no help for Asim in B&H any longer. What we found out from our coordinator in Nice, Natasa Buljevic, is that Asima is now located on nephrology-vascular department after successful surgery and she is feeling good. Doctors reported: ”At this life threatened patient with a lot of thrombosis, vascular surgeon established proper vascular access designed specifically for Asima as that was the only possible way to do it for her”. Now she will have period of recovery. Asima was transported to France within Transplant program of OPEN NETWORK and the whole process of her treatment will be monitored by our professor, dr. Elisabeth Cassuto.
