Turin 2006 Olympic champion Roman Kostomarov underwent surgery on his left arm. It is reported by “MK”.
The material, citing a source in the hospital, notes that doctors were forced to amputate Kostomarov’s fingers on his left hand. “The amputation of the fingers was necessary because they began to turn black, which meant that the process of gangrene had begun in the hand,” a hospital source told the publication. According to him, if the measures taken are not enough to stop the negative processes, the athlete can amputate the entire hand.
Recall that Roman Kostomarov was hospitalized on January 10 with advanced pneumonia. Almost immediately, he was transferred to the medical center in Kommunarka. Doctors had to connect the skater to ventilators and ECMO. Subsequently, due to the development of sepsis and peripheral circulation disorders, he underwent amputation operations on the lower and right upper extremities. At present, the athlete has been removed from the ventilator, and his tracheostomy has also been closed.
