The serious condition of a 46-year-old man who was crushed in the matza factory where he works has stabilized, according to doctors at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva. In the accident, blood vessels supplying vital limbs were damaged.

The medical teams fought for his life using a technique never before used in Israel. Cardiac and chest surgeons created bypasses that made it possible for the blood to flow to the brain and arteries of the intestines and liver. The team included invasive radiology experts and vascular surgeons as well.

His condition is stable as he remains attached to a respirator and under anesthesia at Beilinson’s cardiac intensive care unit.
