  • Liver Transplant gives new lease of life to a 55 year old in Pune who was suffering from chronic liver disease
  • Transportation achieved in just 3.25 hrs against the usual 6 hrs travel time

A 33 year old man was admitted to a Hospital after he met with an accident in Aurangabad. The patient was decelerated brain dead and the ZTCC (Zonal Transplant Coordination Centre) was notified, who then according to the regulations allocated the Liver to Sahyadri Hospital Deccan.

The medical team at Sahyadri Hospital Deccan immediately travelled to Aurangabad to retrive the organ. Post Retrieval, the liver of the brain dead patient was harvested and transported via ‘Green Corridor’ from Aurangabad to Sahyadri Hospital Deccan earlier today.

This was Sahyadri Hospitals’ second successful green corridor which was created from Aurangabad to Pune and the organ reached Sahyadri Hospital Deccan at around 10.40 am, in about 3.5 hours (normally it takes 6 hours) This was all due to the combined efforts of Pune and Aurangabad traffic police.

This liver transported from Aurangabad was successfully transplanted in the 55 year old who was suffering from chronic liver diseases at Sahyadri Hospitals, Deccan Gymkhana. Liver Transplant & HPB Surgeons Dr. Bipin Vibhute & Dr. Prashantha Rao, Transplant Anaesthetists-Dr. Manish Phatak, and the entire Liver Team carried out the Live Transplant.

Usually it takes 6 hours to travel from Aurangabad to Pune, thanks to the green corridor created by traffic police,this transportation was achieved in just 3.25 hours. Also role of ZTCC coordinator Mrs. Aarti Gokhale was very instrumental in coordinating the entire green corridor.

In a span of last few months, from its inception Sahyadri’s Centre for Organ Transplant has performed 11 successful liver Transplants.
