BRAIN-DEAD VICTIM’S HEART GOES TO WOMAN IN HYDERABAD

The city witnessed another organ donation on Saturday with the family of 30-year-old Pandit Shivraya Baje donating his vital organs. A green corridor was created to transport the donor’s heart from PMSSY Hospital located on Victoria Hospital campus to Yashoda Hospital, Secunderabad. This is the 12th donation this year and the third in the last one week.

 

While this person’s heart will save the life of a woman in Hyderabad, his other organs will give a new lease of life to five others.

The patient was shifted from Fortis Hospital to the government-run super-specialty hospital built under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) for organ retrieval.

 

Nagesh N.S., head of the transplant team at PMSSY hospital, told that the supervisor from a village near Sholapur had met with a road accident on 26 February near Electronic City. He was shifted by his employer to Fortis Hospital on Bannerghatta Road, from where he was shifted to PMSSY for the organ retrieval.

 

The Zonal Coordination Committee of Karnataka for Transplantation, the nodal agency for facilitating organ transplants in the State, finalised the list of recipients. While the heart went to Yashoda Hospital, Secunderabad, the liver went to HCG, Bengaluru. One kidney was sent to the State-run Institute of Nephrology and another to St. John’s Hospital. The corneas were donated to Lions Eye Bank.
