Doctors at Fortis Hospital, Mulund successfully transplanted a heart into a 42 year old man after another efficacious interstate heart transplant from Surat, Gujarat to Mumbai, Maharastra. The transport of the donor heart between the two states was completed in 1 hour 24 minutes covering a distance of over 257.72 kilometers.
The recipient was suffering from Dilated Cardiomyopathy; he was waitlisted for a transplant for over three months. A heart transplant was essential to save his life. This happened when Dr Anvay Mulay, Head of Cardiac Transplant Team from Fortis Hospital, Mulund in Mumbai successfully retrieved the heart from 52 year old donor suffering from Intracranial Bleed. The donor’s family consented to the noble cause of donating his organs; i.e. Heart, Liver and Kidneys after he was declared brain dead at the Ayush ICU & Multispecialty Hospital in Surat, Gujarat.
