The chief physician of the First city hospital Alex Light in conversation with “Kommersant” said that Elena Mishurina conducted patient routine procedure.

Hematologists usually doing this procedure two to three times a day. And the patient signs the informed agreement where it explained the progress of the procedure, which can be unpleasant sensations, which anesthesia, indicate possible complications.Alex Shotglasses First city hospital

The chief of Department of the National medical research center of Hematology of the Faith of the Trinity explained “Kommersant” that allows biopsy to assess the condition of bone marrow hematopoiesis, and tumor volume: “the results affect the choice of treatment. The procedure is invasive as an injection into a vein or taking blood from the finger. Any invasive procedure carries risks. But here it is very small — 0,05%”. The expert added that diseases of the blood system “can be expressed including spontaneous bleeding, hematoma, thrombosis, without any mechanical reason”: “as far As I know, the patient had two cancers, one of which is characterized by increased bleeding”. Faith Trinity noted that it has “questions to the experts who carried out the autopsy” (performed in the clinic “Medsi”. The lawyer of Misurina MS Maria Zaytseva noted earlier that the company was not licensed to conduct an autopsy, “meds” this information “b” is not said, but expressed the hope that the revision of the sentence). “Even if hypothetically the bleeding arose from the procedure, can doctor for a potential complication, — says Mrs. Trinity.— Doctors can not tie the hands of fear, when it works. We work in Hematology — medicine critical decisions, we have very severe cases”.

If the doctor is afraid for his freedom, he will not perform his job to the extent in which he would be able to do it. This will lead to reduced performance.Faith Tricategories National medical research center of Hematology

Mr. Light is also called pathological conclusion, “strange and unconvincing”. He believes that to clarify the legal regime of the work of physicians needs practitioners: “we Need professionals who would have developed the law for doctors”. “You can’t put what’s not written in law”, — said the President of the “League of patients” Alexander Saversky. He said that article 238 of the criminal code speaks of the “safety requirements in accordance with the law on protection of consumer rights”, “But for trepanobiopsy of such requirements does not exist.” Also “raises serious questions on the spread of doctors that is criminal, not administrative responsibility” in the cases of careless forms of guilt: “In the administrative code at all compositions of administrative violations of doctors. This savagery.”
