What is happening with Roman Kostomarov?
Roman Kostomarov continues to fight for his life. While doctors can not cope with sepsis. The figure skater belongs to the group of patients who, in addition to the severe course of the underlying pathology, present multiple concomitant complications.
In addition, nosocomial infection was added. Staphylococci, strep and their rarer and more dangerous “brothers” destroy the body. By the way, as experts assure, putting a patient on a ventilator is also a fungus, the mk.ru website reports.
As for sepsis, due to which Roman developed gangrene and underwent amputation operations, it also led to thrombosis. The development of various thrombotic occlusions in different arteries and the formation of these thrombi led to recurrent stroke, reports Izvestia.
