“Sunil was declared brain dead initially at 7.45 am and at 1.46 pm for the second time. Later, family members were counselled to donate vital organs to give new lease of life to the needy patients,” sewadar of Muskan Group, involved in the donation process, said.

Second dual transplant in city, liver and kidney transplanted to same patient

While heart and lungs of the patient were flown to Ahmedabad, kidney and liver were transplanted to a 27-year-old female in Vishesh Jupiter Hospital. It is for the second time when dual organ transplant in a single patient took place in the city. Earlier, similar transplant was performed by Bombay Hospital, about a couple of years ago.

“The patient was suffering from aHUS (atypical Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome) causing postpartum acute renal failure. It is kind of thrombosis in liver due to lack of enzymes which also causes her kidney damage. It is for the second time in city when dual transplant took place. The cadaveric organ donation in medico legal cases was started from Indore in the country,” Dr Dixit said.

Similarly, one kidney was transplanted to 37-year-female in Choithram Hospital.

Mother took the decision after other family members refused

Mother of the deceased took the decision of donating his organs with the aim of keeping him alive even after death. Initially, family members declined to donate his organs. Later, his mother took the brave decision after which donation process was started.

Woman, who got heart allocated initially found Covid positive

The heart was transplanted to a woman in Ahmedabad. According to officials, it was allocated to another woman initially at the same hospital but she was found Covid positive after which it was allocated to another woman, in the waiting list.
