Indore: Two green corridors were created consecutively on Thursday to transport liver and kidneys of 38-year-old Sanjana Nagar who was declared brain-dead after a road accident in Dewas district. This was the fifth time in a month that green corridors were prepared in the city for saving several lives while it was the 24th Green Corridor in last 21 months.

Liver and one of the kidneys of the donor were transported from Bombay Hospital to Medanta Hospital and Choithram Hospital respectively while one of the kidneys was transplanted to a needy patient in Bombay Hospital itself.

It was reported that the heart could not be retrieved as it had some infection while the liver was successfully transplanted to a city based patient.

The green corridor was created at 10:15 am and the ambulance carrying the organ reached at Medanta Hospital within three minutes. Similarly, another corridor was prepared at 11:10 am for Choithram Hospital and the ambulance reached at the hospital in 14 minutes.

Normally, it takes around 30 minutes to cover this distance.

Sanjana Nagar, whose organs were harvested, was declared brain-dead by the doctors on Wednesday evening. Sanjana, a resident of Jaitpura in Dewas district, met with an accident five days ago and was shifted to Bombay Hospital for treatment.

“After the patient was declared brain-dead, family members contacted us and agreed to donate organs when we counselled them,” said Muskan Group’s Jeetu Bagani.

Doctors did not face any major problem in carrying out the operation as both the green corridors were executed perfectly, he added.

“It was our 24th successful attempt and our confidence level has gone up with the entire procedure. The procedure which would normally take us two-three hours was curtailed to some minutes. It is a major achievement for Indore to successfully execute green corridors and organ donations,” said members of Indore Organ Donation Society.
