The 63-year-old patient who came to India from Afghanistan underwent surgery at HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka.
For the first time in the country, a liver was transplanted from a donor with a different blood group to a patient. This type of surgery is called ABO incompatible surgery. A 63-year-old patient from Afghanistan had liver failure due to Hepatitis-B. The patient was brought to India for surgery and the surgery was performed at HCMCT Manipal Hospital, Dwarka.
12 hour surgery
The surgery was performed by Dr. Shailendra Lalwani and his team. Dr. Shailendra says, ABO incompatible surgery is a complex procedure. For this, experienced experts, infrastructure, medical care and infection-free environment are necessary. Such surgery had to be done due to non-uniform blood group of the patient and the donor. The surgery which lasted for 12 hours was successful. Recovery after surgery takes 3 weeks, but the patient recovered in two weeks. He was discharged within a few weeks.
The patient’s 24-year-old son Samad said, “I have been able to lead a healthy life only because of my father. Couldn’t have given a better gift to a father on the occasion of Father’s Day. Grateful to the hospital team for the father’s care and surgery.
Ramana NewsBust India, director of the hospital, says the matter was critical and required an experienced specialist. Dr. Shailendra Lalvani and his team successfully performed the surgery.
What is ABO Incompatible Surgery?
ABO incompatible surgery is performed when the donor and the recipient do not have the same blood group. For this surgery, preparations have to be started about a month in advance. Tests are done before surgery to ensure that the antibodies do not react. It is also understood whether antibodies will be able to build up to a certain target in the body.
