The main thing in life — it’s a work. It brings a happiness. In memoriam of Viktor Ivanovich Shchehlov
Victor Ivanovich Shchehlov (December 26, 1938 — September 19, 2018) is the most famous Ukrainian endovascular neurosurgeon, who was known all over the world. We, his students, remember the life and legacy of Victor Ivanovich, and his achievements, as the father of Ukrainian endovascular neurosurgery and the legendary neurosurgeon, will remain on pages of national history. Viktor Ivanovіch was not a man whose life and achievements can be placed in one article or book, but rather they are hidden in the whole generation, in every modern Ukrainian endovascular operating room. A pioneer in the field of cerebral aneurysm and vascular malformation occlusion, Victor Ivanovich was a leader of the whole vascular surgery of the human brain. Victor Ivanovich is the author of more than 200 publications with scientific and practical direction, 27 patents, and 9 monographs. He lectured at Harvard University (Boston, USA), John Hopkins Clinics (Baltimore, USA), Henry Ford (Detroit, USA), University Clinics of Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Poland and other countries. Ukrainian medicine has lost an outstanding scientist, a talented surgeon, and a wonderful person. The shining memory of Victor Ivanovich will remain in our hearts forever.
