Fortis Escorts Kidney & Urology Institute and Fortis Memorial Research Institute conducted two intricate transplants recently on two patients out of four who received organ donations from the family of a road traffic accident victim. The patient had been brought in at Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj on 6th June 2016.
The first surgery was an open kidney transplant conducted on Sanjeev Khera, a 48 year-old male from Delhi. Sanjeev had been suffering from stage five chronic kidney disease with a history of diabetes and hypertension over the past four years. The surgery for kidney transplants conducted by the team at Fortis Escorts Kidney & Urology Institute took just one hour.
Dr Feroz Amir Zafar, Consultant, Urology & Renal Transplant Surgery, Fortis Escorts Kidney & Urology Institute said, “In a regular open surgery for kidney transplant, we take the kidney from a live donor and the time taken to retrieve the kidney and conducting the transplant is very less. However, if the kidney is coming from a deceased donor, certain unavoidable risks and delays are involved. In this case, with a family history of diabetes no one in the family was able to donate the organ. We were also not very sure if his diabetic condition will allow the new organ to perform. But effective time management, helped us conduct the transplant in one hour and within 48 hours, he was shifted to the ward.
