From 11th to 18th May 2019, DULA medical team (2 plastic surgeons, 3 anaesthetists, 1 medical and 2 general staff) visited Pyongyang Medical University Hospital.
After visiting North Korea several times to treat patients with cleft lip and palate, we saw the need for burn reconstruction. Hence for the first time we started reconstructive surgery for burn patients as well as continuing our work with cleft lip and palate patients. Operations were led by DULA medical team and was supported Pyongyang Medical University Hospital staff.
Overall, we managed to treat 28 patients- 25 patients for cleft lip and palate, and 3 patients for burn reconstruction.
It was great cooperating with Pyongyang Medical University Hospital and we thank KFPD for organising recruitment and administration.
