Surgeons at Fortis Hospital, Mulund Conduct City’s 20th Landmark Heart Transplant Surgery

Date : June 21, 2016

Another Mumbaikar received a donor heart from Aurangabad today, who opened their hearts to save a precious life. Suffering from Viral Myocarditis and Intractable Arrhythmia since the past 2 months, a heart transplant was absolutely essential and only hope of survival for the 38year old male recipient. The recipient, a resident of Thane, Mumbai was waitlisted for the past 10days. City’s 20th heart transplant became possible after a 32year old male patient was declared brain-dead following a road traffic accident that resulted in a head injury; at United Ciigma Hospital, Aurangabad.

The donor heart left United Ciigma Hospital at 06.35AM, reaching Aurangabad Airport at 06.42AM; it was then transferred into a commercial flight that took off at 06.52AM, landing at Mumbai Airport at 07.27AM, immediately heading out to the stand-by ambulance. The Green Corridor chalked from Domestic Airport (Gate No. 8) to Military Road – Santacruz-Chembur Link Road - Chedda Nagar to Eastern Express Highway - Airoli Junction and finally to Fortis Hospital, Mulund, helped the heart reach Fortis Hospital Mulund at 07.54AM and was immediately rushed into the OT at 07.55AM into the waiting hands of Dr Anvay Mulay, Chief of Cardiac Transplant Team, at the hospital.
