Synthesis of the Letter by Dr. Nicholas A. Kusznir, Chief of Neurosurgery. Sanguinetti Hospital, Pilar to Cristina Franco, President of RC Pilar Norte:

"For decades, the surgical microscope has been an essential tool in modern neurosurgery. This tool should be available 24 hours in hospital operating rooms to meet scheduled pathologies as well as for emergency neurosurgery.

An example is the aneurysmal pathology. This high incidence disease affects young people and occurs in most cases when an intracranial hemorrhage is generated. Early surgical resolution (within 12 hours) is vital.

When transfer of the patient to other health centers is necessary, if a microscope is not available, the patient's life is too often endangered.

Some tumors should not be operated upon without the aid of a surgical microscope, which allows the surgeon to see the structures involved (nerves, arteries, veins) that he cannot with the naked eye.

Having the right Microscope improves rates of operative morbidity and mortality. In addition, this tool allows better surgical resolution for tumor, vascular diseases of the spine which reduces morbidity in many of them and is essential in other procedures.

Our hospital serves a large mostly poor population.

Approximately 30% of patients admitted to our hospital, either by the emergency room or outpatient treatment require a surgical microscope.

Hospital and neurological Service have tried to refer patients with this condition, most of the time, it becomes impossible in practice because the health system is collapsing.

Thus the patient often dies.

Thank you very much for your concern and time spent on our Department of Neurology at the Hospital Sanguinetti and residents of the community of Pilar.

Your help will mark a before and after for patients Neurology "

Best regards.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
