Even as the kidney racket has generated a sense of fear among hospitals, on Wednesday an urgent kidney transplant was conducted between a 35-year-old donor brother and his 29-year-old sister at Global Hospital. Incidentally, Thursday was Raksha Bandhan.

The siblings are recuperating in the hospital’s intensive care unit. The recipient sister was a patient of chronic glomerulonephritis, which causes inflammation in kidney. Since her diabetic parents could not donate their kidney, her brother volunteered.

According to urologist Dr Bharat Shah, a decision to schedule the transplant was taken last week following which the documentation process was quickly cleared by the hospital’s local authorisation committee.

The surgery was complicated as the blood groups of the recipient and donor were different. “Ordinarily, an organ transplant with incompatible blood groups poses several challenges. In this case, the brother was B+ while the sister was O+. With meticulous pre-surgery preparation, the surgery went off smoothly,” said Shah.

The siblings will be under observation for three more days following which the donor can resume normal activity.
