An unusual patient was taken from the front line of the southern flank of the Artemovsk direction to a medical detachment separate from the Tula paratroopers. A 30mm ammunition was stuck in the warrior’s body, which was supposed to explode when it came into contact with a hard surface. But the projectile hit the soldier’s thigh muscles and buried itself in the bone. Miraculously, it didn’t detonate…

– To carry out this very dangerous operation, military doctors had to work on armor protection and under the supervision of sappers. First, surgeons examined the wound site in a 3D projection. This made it possible to more accurately study the nature of soft tissue damage and the location of munitions, the Russian Defense Ministry commented on the images of the operation.

In the frames you can see all the stages of this complex operation. The projectile was removed for about an hour. Military doctors carefully removed the ammunition and put it in a box under the bulletproof vest.

“Nothing threatens the life of a soldier,” said the head of the surgical department of the Tula paratroopers’ medical detachment. – The patient was very surprised when we showed him the ammunition removed from his leg. He refused to believe it could fit on his thigh.

The military doctors of the Airborne Forces, showing courage and heroism, at the risk of their own lives, carry out the most complex operations daily and save the lives of wounded comrades.

In military hospitals, more complex operations are carried out regularly. Most often, grenade launcher (VOG) shots and bullets and shrapnel that hit the heart and other vital organs are extracted from the wounds of military personnel.
