Hubballi: KIMS Hospital doctors successfully harvest vital organs of a brain-dead patient

Hubballi: The vital organs of a 31-year-old male brain-dead patient were harvested on Tuesday morning at the Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS). The donor, a 31-year-old male from Hospete, had suffered head injuries while riding pillion and was admitted to KIMS on September 25.

The Director of KIMS, Dr. Ramalingappa Antartani, said the team of surgeons harvested the heart, eyes, kidneys, and liver from the body. The liver was transported to Bengaluru Sparsha Hospital and heart was given to Jayadeva Hospital, and one kidney was transported to SDM Hospital in Sattur, Dharwad. One kidney is being transplanted to a 41-year-old male patient admitted to KIMS. His eyes would be preserved and they would be implanted into the needy patient.

The doctors declared him brain dead as he was not responding to the treatment. The team convinced the family members that he would not recover, and the family members agreed to donate the vital organs, he said.

Dr. Ramalingappa thanked the donor’s family members for their generosity and stated that the man had saved the lives of at least six people.

The nephrology department head, Dr Venkatesh Moger, stated that the patient’s kidney is being implanted into a 41-year-old male patient who was suffering from renal failure and had been on dialysis for the last two years and that the cornea will be preserved and implanted into the needy patient.

Dr Arunkumar, Medical Superintendent, Dr Rajashekhar Dyaberi, and others have put their efforts into the successful retrieval of the organs from the donor.
