Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Iliana Salonikios Kostić (2018).
Iliana was prematurely born. She got sepsis during the analysis and that caused multiple complications and she was finally diagnosed with hydrocephalus obstructive. In the struggle for Ilian's life, the doctors at University Children’s Hospital Tiršova implanted her two shunts: VP shunt I sin., CP shunt I dex.
Both shunts, that were set up, did not solve her problem, because Iliana’s life was in danger all the time. The cerebrospinal fluid is being constantly created and is enlarging the head circumference that is directly endangering her life.
Recently, Iliana had a magnetic resonance and the findings were sent to the Neurology Clinic in Leipzig. According to the findings, doctors suggested that endoscopy should be done in order to make better connection between cysts and ventricles to allow the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and relocation of the shunts.
