Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 3 MEDICAL MIRACLE: LENINGRAD" (CP) Edgar Reiprich, the Canadian youth brought to Leningrad as a hopeless cripple, will be able to walk again, Tass news agency reported today. A special corset of Leningrad design and mechanical units for knee and hip joints as well as special footwear have already been ordered for the Scarborough, Ont., youth who has been lying immobile since July 4, 1971, after a motorcycle accident. Tass said in a special report, written for The Canadian Press, that no such equipment is ordered for patients unless there is hope of restoring their mobility. The agency said Reiprich, brought to the Leningrad neurosurgery research institute by his mother, will be put back on his feet. The 17-year-old youth became a patient of the institute Jan. 22 after his mother, Mrs. Stephania Reiprich, appealed to the Soviet administration for help. She now is staying with her son at the clinic. Mrs. Reiprich read of the work done by the institute's Professor Veniamin Ugryumov who provided active life for Martin Rahe, 26-year-old German chemist. Prof. Ugryumov, 62, a director of the institute, said in an interview that the experience gained through the operation on Rahe "gives ground to hope that the young Reiprich, just like patients who stayed here before, will restore his motive, sensory and other functions, lost as a result of the injury." After exploratory tests, un- dertaken with Dr. Vladimir Schedrenok, 36, the attending physician, Prof. Ugryumov said: "We think our Canadian col- leagues made a somewhat hasty conclusion on the trans- verse rupture of the spinal cord. If that were really the case, we would not be able to do much to help the patient." The Leningrad doctors believe that Reiprich's spinal cord remained partially intact after his fall from his motorcycle. What remained undamaged is still to be determined "but various bits of evidence we now have shown that we are, on the whole, right in our Prof. Ugr- Will walk again Edgar Reiprich shown with his mother yumov said. the case where the risk of X-rays showed that operative treatment is well Reiprich's spinal cord had justified, Prof. Ugryumov been squeezed. This is exactly said.
