Successful Liver Transplant Surgery for a 11 month old boy, the first of its kind, done in India.

April 18, 2008

For a eleven month old Chennai boy namely Siddharth, for his liver ailment diagnosed as Biliary Atresia, doctos from the Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, have successfully performed a liver transplant, the first of its kind in India.

The child developed jaundice when he was just two days of age, but it was ignored as a normal condition. When the doctors at Chennai found out that the boy’s liver lacked liver ducts, without which the liver gets trapped within the liver cells, causing damage and scarring, resulting in liver failure and ultimately perhaps death. The doctors tried for a corrective surgery when he was five months old. But it was of no avail.

Then the parents of the boy tried for many hospitals and at last found out the Ganga Ram Hospital at New Delhi, where 10 to 12 successful liver transplants are done every day with 100 % success among children.

The boy’s aunt had donated her 20 % liver to the boy, since a cadaver donar was not available..Dr.A.S.Soin. who led the team of successful doctors in the liver transplant surgery said in a press interview in Chennai that the liver transplant surgery was challenging since they had to perform a bloodless surgery. Since the baby could not tolerate even a small blood loss and his blood vessels were so minute and so the surgery had to be performed under the microscope.

Acording to the hospital’s Chief liver physician, ‘The post-operative period was smooth and the problems of infection and rejection of the new liver were tackled effectively and the baby was discharged three weeks after the life saving successful liver transplant surgery’
