A 52-year-old who was declared brain dead gave a new lease of life to three people by donating kidneys and liver.
The patient was an organ recipient and had undergone a successful liver transplant. But he suffered from an episode of right-sided weakness with slurring of speech. On examination, the MRI suggested intra-cranial hemorrhage with midline shift, said doctors at Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI) in a statement.
“The patient was put on ventilator support, however despite best efforts, the patient was declared brain dead. The family consented to donate organs — both the kidneys and the liver and the same were allotted by NOTTO to one recipient in FMRI and two recipients at private hospitals in Delhi,” the hospital said.
One of the kidneys was transplanted into a 60-year-old female at FMRI, while the second kidney and the liver were allotted to a 51-year-old female and a 54-year-old male respectively in different hospitals in Delhi.
“I salute the deceased donor and his family to have realised the value of organ donation and giving life to many ailing patients. We should all be a part of this noble act of giving life after death by donating organs,” said Dr. Anil Mandhani, Executive Director, Urology and Kidney Transplant, in a statement.
