First liver transplantation surgery — that too a live liver donation — was conducted at Fortis Hospital, Mohali, recently on a 48-year-old Bangladeshi national Abdul Mannan and his wife Sokina Begum, who had donated a part of her liver to him.
Announcing this here on Monday, doctors at the hospital said that both were doing well and returning to Bangladesh on Monday.
The liver was transplanted on July 13. The intricate and complicated surgery was conducted by a team led by Dr Subba Rao V Kanchustambam, chief liver transplant surgeon and director, Centre for Liver Transplant and Hepatobiliary Services.
"Abdul Mannan came in a very critical state to Fortis Hospital around two months ago for a possible liver transplant. Earlier, he had been diagnosed with Hepatitis C-related liver cirrhosis and had been undergoing treatment in Karachi, where he worked as a fisherman, and at Dhaka. But he developed end-stage liver disease. He was vomiting blood and had gone into hepatic coma," said Dr Rao.
