    Three kids undergo successful liver transplants at SIUT

    Three children, aged between five to 10 years, suffering from liver failure, had new lease of life as they underwent living-related successful liver transplants at Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) last week, doctors said Saturday.

    The SIUT doctors sharing details of the procedure here said that all the three children were now out of the intensive care unit and were making good progress. The donors, two of the mothers of the recipients and one father were said to have also done very well.

    The successful surgical procedure was performed by a team of SIUT surgeons along with a visiting team from the Shiraz Organ Transplant Centre which is one of the largest of its kind in the region. Dr Malek Al Husaini who led the Iranian team was the head of Shiraz Transplant Centre and an immediate past President of the Middle East Society of Organ Transplantation.

    Mohammad Bilal, aged 7, received liver from his father Mohammad Iqbal (40 years); Ahsan Aslam, a 10- year old resident of Usmanabad received the organ from his mother, Kishwar Aslam (35) while Ahsan Ali Haider, aged 5, who also comes from Usmanabad was the third patient whose mother Nazia Ali Haider, gave a part of her liver. These patients received care under the traditional SIUT model where all treatment is provided free of cost and thus the entire surgical procedure and post-operation care caused no economic hardship to the three families.

    I can see that Dr. Adeeb Rizwi has everything to do with it (indirectly though).
    Previous efforts with an Indian surgeon didn't prove fruitful.If i'm not wrong Sheikh Zayed hospital (Lhr) was the center of that activity.Taking up 3 cases at time shows,how confident they were about it.The rest should follow the trend.
