 Rare Kidney Transplant Procedure Conducted in CMC Hospital
The Christian Medical College Hospital, Vellore has earned the distinction of recently conducting a "successful kidney transplantation across major blood group incompatibility."

The Department of Nephrology was supported by the Department of Immunohaematology and Transfusion Medicine in this surgery. Matching blood groups is a pre-requisite for any kidney transplant, but recently hospitals have begun taking up mismatched cases.

The advent of more potent immunosuppressive drugs has made it possible to conduct such surgeries and CMC, Vellore has thus used them to good effect and has reached another milestone in treating patients with end-stage renal failure.

The recent surgery was done on 21-year-old Anbarasu of Vellore. His mother donated the kidney and both are reported to be recovering uneventfully.
