Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 27 Jul,2016

Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, the leader in the provision of cutting-edge medical services in Eastern India, successfully performed a cadaver liver transplant at its state-of-the-art Institute of Gastro sciences.

The donor, 53 year old Mr. Samar Chakraborty, had been brought to Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata on Tuesday, 26 July, 2016, where he was declared ‘brain dead’ by a panel comprising of doctors from the hospital and the Department of Health, Government of West Bengal. His family agreed to multi-organ donation, and after the completion of the necessary formalities, his liver and corneas were harvested for transplantation.

Under the able guidance of Dr Mahesh Kumar Goenka, Gastroenterologist and Director, Institute of Gastrosciences, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, and his team, the liver was transplanted to 46 year old Ms. Madhuri Saha, a patient of several liver ailments who had been advised to undergo a transplant at the earliest. Dr Goenka observed, “We have successfully harvested and transplanted the liver through a surgical procedure that took about 10 hours. The recipient is doing fine till now, and would need to remain under observation and treatment for about a fortnight before we can confirm the prognosis. If the results are found to be as expected, this will be the first instance of a successful cadaver liver transplant in entire Eastern India.”
